Respiratory System & Airways

Respiratory System & Airways

YOUR SPORT HORSE’S BREATHING IS ITS PRIMARY LIMITATION

Sport horses’ evolution over the centuries is truly miraculous. They are capable of travelling long distances and achieving impressive speeds. Their incredibly powerful muscles adapt to training extremely fast. Their exceptionally large hearts deliver the energy their muscles require. While in humans, the heart is the greatest bottleneck, horses have a different restriction: their respiratory system’s physical limitations mean that during strenuous exercise, they do not get enough oxygen.

RESPIRATORY PROBLEMS LEADING TO PREMATURE RETIREMENT

Sport horses are often put out to pasture without proper knowledge of why they stopped performing well. A horse with breathing problems may not display obvious symptoms such as a cough, a runny nose or laboured breathing. Yet scientific research shows that as high as 88% of sport horses exhibiting poor performance are suffering from inflamed airways. Be sure to have a veterinarian check a horse that is performing poorly for respiratory disorders.

In the fit horse, the respiratory system is considered the limiting factor to performance.
