Biochemical profile of polo horses in training phase and those players of official competition
TLDR
Evaluating the profile of proteins, metabolites, minerals, and enzymes of polo horses in training and those that participate regularly in official competitions concluded that this was relative to the physical condition of each animal.
Physical, Haematological and Biochemical Responses of Arabian Horses to Jereed (Javelin Swarm) Competition
TLDR
Evaluated physical, haematological and biochemical changes in horses after acute exercise in a jereed game found majority did not return to the baseline 30 or 60 minutes after competition and most were within or near to the reference range values.
Physiological and hemato-chemical evaluation of thoroughbred race horses after exercise. -
TLDR
Significant increase in all physiological, hematological and hematochemical parameters 5 min after exercise that returned to basal levels after 60 min rest can be useful index about horse performance, the effect of exercise on horse metabolism and helpful in management protocols of athletic horses.
Biochemical responses to a non-standard exercise in horses trained for jumping
TLDR
It is demonstrated that trained horses adapted to a certain exercise regimen are exposed to oxidative and metabolic stress by non-standard prolonged workload, and further research is required to assign an appropriate resting regime needed to compensate for the induced biochemical changes.
Hematological, biochemical, and endocrine parameters in acute response to increasing-intensity exercise in Colombian Paso horses
TLDR
The increasing-intensity exercise carried out during a standardized field test produced a negative change in plasma volume and the activation of the classic sympathetic-adrenergic response in CPHs.
Acute-phase protein profile in horses subjected to different exercise protocols.
TLDR
Investigation of the synthesis and profile of serum proteins in horses before and after participating in 2 different exercise protocols finds increases of AGP in the TLD protocol suggest the release of catecholamines as a response to avoid oxidative damage to tissue.
Biochemical response to physical exercise in show-jumping horses
TLDR
The applied exercise induced increases of biochemical parameters CK, AST, ALT, triacylglycerols, total cholesterol and creatinine within the reference ranges reflected the changes in skeletal muscle and kidney functions as well as alterations in the type of used energy.
Physiological and biochemical responses and hydration status in equines after two barrel racing courses
TLDR
It was concluded that the maximum intensity exercise performed on two barrel race courses caused mild hemoconcentration, did not changed plasma osmolality or concentrations of important electrolytes and muscle enzymes of horses, but caused hyperlactatemia without the plasma lactate concentrations being fully recomposed after resting.
Oxidative metabolism and muscle biochemical profile of polo horses supplemented with an ADE vitamin complex
TLDR
The higher GSH and lower lactate levels in the TG before the game suggest the presence of a greater antioxidant supply in the treated animals, and the maintenance of the MDA levels indicates that neither of the groups exhibited oxidative stress.
Usefulness of creatine kinase activity determination for assessing the effects of physical effort in horses.
TLDR
It seems that it would be appropriate to present variability of postexercise CK activity in percentages, which will facilitate the assessment of this phenomenon in different individuals, often subjected to different loads.

Changes in blood constituents accompanying exercise in polo horses.
TLDR
Horses playing indoor polo develop a high plasma lactic acid, but with alkalemia, and could be used as a model to study this condition, and in some aspects to those reported for horses performing prolonged exercise such as three-day event horses and endurance horses.
Haematological and biochemical changes in horses competing in a 3 Star horse trial and 3-day-event.
TLDR
It was deduced that the horses competing in the 3-day-event experienced greater fluid and electrolyte losses, reduced glomerular filtration, higher glycogenolysis and had greater leakage of enzymes from working muscles during competition than horses compete in the horse trial.
Relationship of plasma lactate production to cortisol release following completion of different types of sporting events in horses
TLDR
It is concluded that simultaneous measurements of plasma CORT and LA levels may be useful to discriminate between different types of exercise, adjust training programmes, and improve the comprehension of the physiology of sport horses at exercise.
Haematological changes associated with endurance exercise

    Veterinary Record
  • 1982
TLDR
Significant correlations were found for heart rate, speed and noradrenaline concentrations with packed cell volume, haemoglobin, red cell counts percentage of neutrophils and percentage of lymphocytes, for values immediately after the ride.
Changes in selected biochemical constituents of blood collected from horses participating in a 50-mile endurance ride.
TLDR
The changes in serum electrolytes, enzymes, and blood metabolites reflect the sweating, muscle damage, and increased dependency on anaerobic glycolysis and lipid mobilization that these horses experienced during the competitive endurance ride.
A field study of post-exercise values of blood biochemical constituents in jumping horses: relationship with score, individual and event.
TLDR
The variability of the post-exercise values (PEV) of blood lactate and of some other blood constituents were studied in 8 healthy and fit jumpers through 5 national competitions of equal difficulty and showed no relationship between the PEV variations and the score.
Heart rate, blood biochemistry and performance of horses competing in a 100 km endurance ride
TLDR
Heart rate measurements appeared to be a reliable indicator of the metabolic status of endurance horses suggesting that veterinary examinations according to the official Federation Equestre Internationale rules are adequate to protect the health and welfare of horses competing in endurance races.
Alterations in muscular enzymes of horses competing long-distance endurance rides under tropical climate
TLDR
Monitoring the alterations of muscle enzymes activity in a group of horses that participated of 70 and 100km distance rides in five competitions of an annual endurance championship under tropical climate revealed different alterations in concentration of muscular enzymes in endurance horses directly related to the duration of the effort.
