Description: Competitive is a pre-competition paste complementary feed which should be used before long competitions, such as endurance riding ones. Competitive helps sustain horses’ energy levels by providing ready-to-use energy they can spend during the competition. Its formulation includes branched-chain amino acids, L-carnitine, L-lysine and vitamin E, which are fundamental substances for all sport horses.
When to use Competitive: Competitive is recommended for those wishing to provide their horses with an extra vitamin E intake and extra energy to sped during long competitions, such as endurance riding ones.
Properties of its constituents: Branched-chain amino acids (valine, leucine and isoleucine) have a medium-long term energizing effect which is, therefore, particularly useful in long competitions, such as endurance riding and evening ones (3). L-carnitine is involved in the energy production process: it is in charge of the transportation of fatty acids into mitochondria, thus speeding up their transformation into energy. Carnitine, which is also known as glycogen loader, is largely used in horses' competition training programs, especially in the United States (16). Thanks to its antioxidant action, vitamin E is useful in case of muscle blockages (6).
Instructions for use: Use a whole Competitive syringe 3 hours before a competition.
