Nutrition for the Equestrian

Why is nutrition critical for equestrians?

Depending on your discipline, an equestrian competition may only take 13 seconds, or several days. That means the degree of needed fitness and optimal nutrition may vary on your chosen sport.

Even at local competitions, nutrition and physical fitness tend to separate the decent riders from the great ones.

Nutrition is key to achieving peak fitness. Plus, being under-fueled during training and competitions can negatively affect hand-eye coordination, balance, and stamina.
