The authors studied the effect of L-carnitine administration on ten 18-month long yearling in pre-qualification training. The yearling were divi ed in 3 groups; control (3 yearling), 9 g /head/ daily of L-Carnitine (4 yearling) and 12 g /head/ daily of L-Carnitine (4 yearling). Plasma profiles relating to exercise (lactic acid, ammonia, CK and AST) were determined. Further the recovery curve of lactic acid is also calculated. The authors conclude that “Carnitine administration could have an favorable effect on horse who have achieved a certain fitness condition and on the occasion of intense and prolonged effort”.
