The aim of the present study was to evaluate systemic repercussions of different exercise tests when compared to those observed during endurance rides. Blood sampling and analysis were performed on horses from the national team in 2009 at 3 canter sessions and on 1 ride. The haematological and biochemical values measured at rest and one hour post-effort were compared using the paired Student-t test and the amplitude of variation was compared between sessions. At rest, some biochemical parameters showed training induced changes. Most of the investigated parameters showed significant variations at work. However, variations observed during canter sessions were much less important than during the ride and remained in the reference values. In elite endurance horses, canter sessions appear to mimic solicitations encountered during rides with much less systemic consequences. The present data justify the use of such exercise tests in the training program of endurance horses. They could be used as a reference to evaluate the response to such exercises in lower level horses. [less ▲]

The objective of this study was to confirm the practical value of high-resolution respirometry (HRR) applied to biopsies to determine, in horses, the level of training, their athletic ability and for the early detection of muscular dysfunction. Materials and methods – The muscle mitochondrial respiration was determined by HRR in 20 endurance horses and 10 trotters sampled at the triceps brachii at different stages of their training. Results – Training increases mitochondrial respiration, in addition, the best performers had the highest rate of respiration. A trotter had abnormally low levels of muscle mitochondrial respiration for its level of training. This horse has presented several episodes of rhabdomyolysis during its racing season. Discussion – The biopsy is easily achievable by the attending veterinarian. This study shows that the athletic ability of horses is closely linked to respiratory muscle function, and suggests the value of HRR for performance prediction. In addition, the RHR has the ability to demonstrate mitochondrial dysfunction potentially responsible for exercise-induced rhabdomyolysis. [less ▲]

Athletic ability of endurance horses is intimately linked to muscle oxidative capacity. Microbiopsies of triceps brachii (TB) and gluteus medius (GM) were collected before and after 10 weeks of training in 7 endurance horses to assess the feasibility of studying training effect with the use of microbiopsies. Oxygen consumption of permeabilized fibers was evaluated by high resolution respirometry (HRR) with a titration protocol that defines the activity of the mitochondrial complexes. Differences among muscles before and after training as well as training effect were assessed by Wilcoxon matched pairs test (P<0.05). No complications occurred following microbiopsies in any horse. The in situ oxidative capacity of the TB and GM increased with training. No difference was found between the TB and GM when one horse was excluded from the statistical analysis. Indeed, this horse showed signs of exercise intolerance before sampling (after the training period) which were associated to a low rate of respiration in GM but not in TB. Results of this study showed that HRR may be used to follow training effect and suggest that metabolic impairment might be detected with HRR. [less ▲]
