What are electrolytes, and why do horses need them? In this month’s Kim Baker Radio Show spotlight on Horses in The Morning, our own Tigger Montague gives expert advice on electrolytes, including the differences between salts.
The more a horse works and sweats, the more minerals and electrolytes a horse can lose through fluids. It is very important to replenish the electrolytes by feeding salts, which will help with hydration and muscle fatigue. Tigger recommends feeding unprocessed Sea Salt and Himalayan Salt, which have supportive trace minerals still in them.

BioStar’s Star Lyte EQ contains Celtic Sea Salt, Himalayan Salt, and Black Lava Salt, for multi-mineral supportive electrolytes and toxin-absorbing charcoal.
This month’s show also includes: Kim’s expertise on horsemanship as a metaphor for life and relationships; four-star Parelli instructor Jesse R. Peters talks about using his horsemanship skills to help zoo animals; and a reading of Christine’s horse Pebbles.
Be sure to stay tuned on the fourth Thursday of every month for The Kim Baker Radio Show, which embraces the healing power horses have with humans, the special and often spiritual connection between horses, animals and humans, and natural/organic/holistic ways to improve the quality of life for animals and humans. BioStar always adds expert advice, as well.
Star Lyte EQ is a unique electrolyte formula that provides a range of mineral-dense salts from land and sea, plus sea vegetables and mangoes for additional nutritional support. Sodium, potassium, chloride, calcium, and magnesium are the major electrolytes. Nerve, heart, and muscle cells need them to carry electrical impulses to other cells, contract muscles, move fluids, and maintain stability of cell walls. Body fluids such as blood, plasma, and the fluid between the cells respond to electrolytes because they are similar to seawater with a high concentration of sodium and chloride.
