    Thanks for all the great info. I've got some stuff to try out. Now to get my nervous horse to relax alone!

    We live near Bowling Green. Haven't been here a full year yet, so I do not know a lot about the rides. I have a really nice neighbor who also does endurance, so we go to Mammoth cave to train. I really have not done too much, with getting everything settled here.

    Maumee Valley is 5/17-5/18, at Midwest Trail Ride in Indiana. I've never been there, but lots of people talk about how nice the trails are.

    Hope to see you at a ride sometime!

    I mix my lytes with apple sauce. I like the thickness of it b/c it's harder to spit out.

    I use old wormer syringes so I don't know what size.

    I only dose at a vet check, right before we leave. I do it after the bit is put back in her mouth. I do not dose the week before, the night before, the morning of. I overlyted my previous horse once. Never again. My horse has had no issues dosing the way I do. We compete in CA where it got 100 on our May ride.

    No chasing. The leftover lytes in their mouth make them thirsty so it encourages them to drink ASAP.
