Hematological dynamics in Jumping Horses

Flavia Bochis

Abstract


The study was conducted to assess the fitness of sport horses jumped in a fence course riding. and the relationship between training schedule stage and the hematological profile. A number of 22 clinically healthy horses (12 Romanian Sport Horse and 10 Thoroughbred) were monitored at the box, before saddling (S1), during training immediately; after the warming-up session (S2) and after an E level fence obstacle course ride (S3). The blood samples were taken from the jugular vein, for the determination of Leucocytes, Erythrocytes, Hemoglobin and Hematocrit. Between the Romanian Sport Horse group and the Thoroughbreds group in the S1 phase there were found significant differences for the Leucocytes (p<0.05), for the Erythrocytes number (p<0.01) and for Hemoglobin count (p<0.01). For Hematocrit, it was obtained a significant difference (p<0.01) in the S2 stage, comparing again the two horse groups. There were registered some other differences as the warming up stage and the obstacle course were finished.
