Magnesium for HorsesMagnesium for Horses

Magnesium is often the most neglected mineral in horse feeds.   Spring grass is typically deficient in magnesium due to the fast growth rate and at this time of year many horses seem hotter and more difficult to ride.  Owners often attribute this to too many carbohydrates in the grass.  While this may be part of the story, what is often overlooked is that these horses may be deficient in magnesium.  Magnesium deficiency has varying effects on the horse population.  Some horses do not suffer any signs while others are almost unrideable due to their apparent silliness and hyperactivity.  Adding magnesium to their diet may have a dramatic calming effect.  To understand why magnesium affects the horse in a calming manner, it is important to know what is happening in your horse’s body on a cellular level when there is a magnesium shortfall.
