Gatorade?

I've heard that Gatorade can be used to provide electrolytes for horses. A boarding barn that I previously boarded at used it frequently,but I'm not sure the specifics of how they used it. Does anyone know how much to give the horses?

Why not just buy electrolytes? It is not as expensive as buying gatorade all the time.

gatorade can most definitely provide electrolytes to a horse, but as wetrain said- its really smarter to just buy the electrolytes. I give gatorade to my horse in the summer as a treat every now and then, but at two dollars a bottle (that is drained within a minute) it would cost quite a lot to use all of the time! Go to a local feed store and request some electrolytes- I can get a large bucket that lasts two weeks for $15. I believe they even have flavors to pick from now. Also!
