The pattern of several blood-gas indices has been investigated in eight show jumpers during a 2-day showjumping event. The effectiveness of the athlete horse's physiological buffering systems has been pointed out, as well as the similarity between the patterns of the indices regarding the acid-base status and those metabolically defining the horse's physical potential. The results of this study draw attention to the importance of a qualitative and quantitative determination of the blood-gas parameters in the show jumper, not only to define the horse's acid-base status but also to analyse the potential performance more accurately.

Abstract

The pattern of several blood-gas indices has been investigated in eight show jumpers during a 2-day showjumping event. The effectiveness of the athlete horse's physiological buffering systems has been pointed out, as well as the similarity between the patterns of the indices regarding the acid-base status and those metabolically defining the horse's physical potential. The results of this study draw attention to the importance of a qualitative and quantitative determination of the blood-gas parameters in the show jumper, not only to define the horse's acid-base status but also to analyse the potential performance more accurately.
