*Bentonite Clay known for being soothing to the gut, also not harmful in general.
*Gastro-guard expensive in the long term and can only be used at preventative dose at an endurance ride.
*More exposure to camping among the masses...
*No pre-ride electrolytes (her electrolytes do seem to set her off).
*Using buffered electroltyes.
I've had some weird stuff go down from time to time, but I must say this was one of the most disheartening (maybe I just wanted it too much). But mostly the fact that it was my last shot at a ride until late in the FALL. It seems forever away. I don't enjoy "pleasure riding" at all. I know that doesn't make a lot of sense. My enjoyment with my horse is factored in goal setting (albeit ever so small). That for me is where it is at. No goal? I can't drag myself out of the door.
