  • The article is usefull for me. I’ll be coming back to your blog.

  • Hi Karen,
    I’ve been enjoying all the information on your website. Thanks so much for taking the time to put it online. I’m new to horses and endurance, but soaking up as much information as I can find.
    I have a question you may be able to answer. Do you know if any of the elements in Electrolytes are destroyed by heat, as in baking?
    Thanks in advance,
    Stephanie from Texas

  • Hi Stephanie – I know that sodium bakes well since we use it ourselves so much. I have a page with horse cookie recipes including one for electrolyte cookies that are baked. http://enduranceridestuff.com/HorseCookieRecipes.html

    If you taste them yourself you can definitely taste the electrolytes in there – I’ll ask one of my vet friends next time I get a chance and see if I can get a more definitive answer :). Karen

  • Thanks! that’s exactly what I was looking for, an electrolyte cookie that would be much easier to carry, might can make some for myself as well :)

  • since I’m going to have to wait a week for my electrolyte purchase to get here, is there a mix (salt, baking soda etc) that I can use to experiment with? THANKS!

  • You could do what my sister did once – instead of 1 tablespoon of salt, put in 1 cup of salt :). Just try one of the recipes with plenty of salt and see how that works. You could crush up some tums for calcium. Good luck! I remember when making the cookies to make sure the oven isn’t too hot, some of the recipes would burn easily. Make the cookies small enough or break them up when feeding – you don’t want to risk a choke if the horse is eating them during a ride. Karen

  • To follow up on this, I did indeed make some ‘cookies’. They turned out like muffins in texture with all the modifications and they tasted NASTY! I tried again and made some salty granola bars, good for me, but my horse wouldn’t tough them. So, I guess that experiement was a failure, but it was a nice idea.

  • Hi i was wondering how much you would bill to set your blog style up on my web logs for me, because i truly like the look of your web log but i do not know how to build such a cool design.

    Karen,
    Which one do you use? This chart is so confusing to me, as i really do not know what a product should contain.
