Muscle Repair Products for Horses
Horses may be stiff when first brought out of their stall or may show signs of being sore from extra long workouts. General stiffness, or the inability to bend or flex, is not a disorder but simply a symptom of musculoskeletal pain or discomfort. Tight muscles and stiff joints are not just a symptom of aging. Any horse can end up with muscle discomfort especially weekend warriors, performance horses and those prone to tying up.
Signs of Sore Muscles & Stiffness
Is my horse lame or just stiff? Trotting your horse in a circle can usually reveal whether he is lame or just sore. Horses that are just off a bit can usually work through it to gently stretch achy muscles. Putting your horse back into his or her stall with strained or stiff muscles will just add to their discomfort. However, a dead lame horse requires a call to your vet. If you suspect your horse is sore, he may show one or more of the following symptoms:
- Pain when palpated
- Poor performance
- Reluctance to move
- Appears lame or ‘ouchy’
- Behavioral changes (i.e.: bucking or tail swishing)
- Lump or gap in muscle
- Altered gait or shorter strides
- Muscle tightness or spasms
- Elevated respiration
- Drops back when mounted or saddled (sore back)
- Abnormal back or pelvis movements
Common Causes of Stiff Muscles & Musculoskeletal Disorders in Horses
- Overuse of muscles
- Improper saddle fit
- Poor condition/unfit for level of work
- Repetitive or strenuous exercise
- Being cast in a stall
- Injuries to muscles
- Poorly executed jumps
- Muscle conditions (PSSM, EPSM, HYPP or RER)
Best Equine Athlete Performance Recovery Supplement to Support Muscle Strength
You’ve examined and eliminated any tack that may be causing an issue and you’re properly warming up your mount but you still want to avoid stiffness or muscle fatigue. If your horse’s muscle pain or discomfort is not due to an underlying medical issue, the goal should be to relieve and prevent soreness. TWYDIL® M helps eliminate lactic acid which can cause a temporary but painful condition called lactic acidosis while allowing your horse to perform longer. Our supplement may also lend support to horses with chronic tie up including Polysaccharide storage myopathy (PSSM), Equine polysaccharide storage myopathy (EPSM), Recurrent exertional rhabdomyolysis (RER) and Hyperkalemic periodic paralysis (HYPP). TWYDIL® M is an all-natural, drug-free muscle health supplement approved for use by the LCH to meet all international, FEI and RCI anti-doping rules.
As always, our recommendations are not a substitute for proper veterinary care and should you have any concerns about your horse’s health or well-being, we suggest checking with your vet before making dietary changes.
