27 Aug Understanding the benefits of light
The lengthening days of spring have long been associated with increased fertility, increased muscle response to exercise, improved coat condition, mood and general well-being. The length of time horses receive light and the quality of light are key factors to consider when administrating light to horses.
How light affects performance
Improving performance for the competition horse occurs when mood, behaviour and physical fitness are optimised. By mimicking the qualities of sunlight on a summer’s day and seasonal changes in lighting, spring can be brought forward and autumn delayed, so that the period of peak performance associated with summer vigour is extended. This ensures your horse maintains its best condition inside and out.
