Oh, I have to add that after years – decades – of giving my horses electrolyte drinks, I have finally discovered what they are all about! This summer has been so hot and humid that I packed 2 bottles of Gatorade when going over to the coach’s.
After our workout, hose-off, unharnessing and dragging the harness to the trailer and pushing my marathon carriage into the carriage shed, I was hot and tired. My mustang was happy, cooled and watered. I was ready to pass out. I actually drank an entire bottle of Gatorade – my first ever – and was SHOCKED at how much better I felt within minutes!
Now I pack 2 bottles all the time. And I even take it to work.
Who knew??
