AbstractFull Text

Aim: To investigate the effects of training sessions on circulating β-endorphin changes in sport horses before and after competition and to ascertain whether competition would affect this response. Materials and Methods: A total of 24 trained jumping horses were randomly assigned to one of two ...

Abstract

Maintenance of metabolic homeostasis is vital to optimise the supply of nutrients to support exercise and facilitate recovery and repair processes in horses. This study assessed the effects of exercise on resting plasma homeostasis in horses upon initiation of a training program to attain fitness...

Abstract

Exercise represents a physical stress that challenges homeostasis affecting central and peripheral serotoninergic systems. The influence of the exercise on circulating serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine [5-HT]) levels depends on training state as well as the exercise protocol. The purpose of the...

Abstract

Serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine [5-HT]) may induce metabolic effects in different cell types, including leukocytes. In horses, 5-HT is involved in physiological and behavioral functions. Physical exercise is known to increase the amounts of 5-HT both in brain and periphery, but so far, the signal...

Abstract

Two groups of unfit Standardbred mares (adult: 9-14 years, 540 kg, n=7) and old (20-25 years, 530 kg, n=5) were used to test two hypotheses, first, that aging and training would alter plasma and muscle glutamine [Gln] and glutamate [Glu] and second, that aging and training would alter Glut-4...

Abstract

Exercise is known to promote mitochondrial biogenesis in skeletal muscle as well as enhance mitochondrial function and efficiency in human and rodent models. These adaptations help to decrease exercise-associated production of reactive oxygen species, which can negatively affect health and...

Abstract

The objective of this study was to describe the training and changes in biophysical variables of 2-, 3-, and 4-year-old Standardbred racehorses trained by a successful trainer during a racing season. Methods: The horses were regularly weighed and submitted to standardised exercise tests (SETs) to...

Abstract

Background: Inspiratory muscle training applies a training stimulus directly to the inspiratory muscles and is distinct from whole-body training. The potential benefits of inspiratory muscle training have yet to be explored in horses. Objectives: The objectives were as follows: (a) to develop an...

Abstract

This study examined the effect of submaximal and high-intensity (sprint) training on venous hemoglobin concentration ([Hb]) in Thoroughbred (Tb) racehorses before and after high-intensity exercise on the gallops. Measurements for n=14 Tb yearlings took place during high-intensity exercise on an...
