Horse First Heavy Sweat.

"Puts back what sweat takes out"

Heavy Sweat is formulated to replicate those salts lost during exercise. Did you realise horses lose salts even more when they are not fully fit? Horses can lose salts even if they don’t show outward signs of sweating, especially true in hot humid weather, travelling or when they are nervous or agitated.


The pinch test: Pull out a pinch of skin on your horse’s neck or shoulder. Notice how quickly it springs back. If it springs right back into place, he’s not very dehydrated. If he is moderately dehydrated the skin will stay elevated a few seconds after you pull it out. The more dehydrated your horse is, the longer the skin will stay elevated.

When to use

When your horse is in work sweating heavily, be CAREFUL some horses do not show visible signs of sweating but they will still need electrolytes.


Dry of colour coat.
No energy or spark.
Dark or cloudy coloured urine.
Which Electrolyte?

Look for a combination of sodium chloride, potassium, chloride, calcium chloride.

Avoid products that are majority fillers like dextorse, sugar or clay.

How to feed an Electrolyte

Mixed in damp feed.
Mixed in a syringe.
In drinking water, always give a choice of drinking water one with and one without.
"VERY IMPORTANT" when feeding electrolytes ALWAYS have a fresh supply of drinking water. Monitor the intake if possible.

All horses that sweat need this product given according to the degree of work because horses often lose more fluid than is obvious.  After intense work give two 50g scoops.  After moderate work give one scoop daily. Replace lid after use.

Feeding Heavy Sweat is the easy way to ensure your horse is not lacking in these vital salts, you can either add to the damp feed or add to water. If adding to water always make sure your horse has another bucket of clean fresh water.
