Age- and gender-related variations in hematology, clinical biochemistry, and hormones in Spanish fillies and colts.
In order to assess which laboratorial parameters need specific age- and/or gender-related reference values, hematological and biochemical profiles (including hormones) were performed in 205 SpanishExpand

Cardiovascular and metabolic adaptations in horses competing in cross-country events.
The cardiovascular and metabolic response to two cross-country events (CC*: preliminary level and CC*** advanced level) were analysed in 8 male eventing horses (4 Anglo-Hunter and 4 Anglo-Arabian).Expand

Effect of training duration and exercise on blood-borne substrates, plasma lactate and enzyme concentrations in Andalusian, Anglo-Arabian and Arabian breeds.
Metabolic responses to exercise differ between Andalusian horses and other breeds, although changes in plasma muscle enzymes have not been reported and most useful information is obtained fromExpand

Locomotor, cardiocirculatory and metabolic adaptations to training in Andalusian and Anglo-Arabian horses.
The effects of two training programmes in 20 Andalusian and 12 Anglo-Arabian horses were evaluated by an increasing intensity work test at velocities of 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 m sec(-1). Heart rate wasExpand

Effects of Training on Phagocytic and Oxidative Metabolism of Peripheral Neutrophils in Horses Exercised in the Aerobic–Anaerobic Transition Area
Using simple techniques, the neutrophil function, in its phagocytosis and oxidative metabolism stages, was evaluated in horses. This was done before and after moderate exercise at theExpand

The use of functional indexes to evaluate fitness in Andalusian horses.
The fitness of 8 Andalusian horses between 3 and 4 years of age was analysed. The animals were subjected to an exercise test on a sandy track consisting of 2 stages of different intensities. TheExpand

Benefits of moderate training to the nonspecific immune response of colts.
The aim of this work was to assess whether progressive training caused an improvement in the nonspecific immune response of colts because several unusual infections are due to defects inherent in theExpand

INVESTIGATION OF STANDARDIZED EXERCISE TESTS ACCORDING TO FITNESS LEVEL FOR THREE-DAY EVENT HORSES
Nine three-day event horses were divided into two groups. In Group A (4 horses), prior to the start of training, horses were subjected to standardized exercise test (SET) A: after a warm-up of 5 minExpand
