Equine Exercise Physiology

Hello

The 3rd day after a speed workout is a peak day.  This is also known as a rebound day, when the horse's physiology is rebounding (recovered) from the hard workout. To better understand the physiological aspect of conditioning the racehorse, I recommend the book "Equine Exercise Physiology", available at Amazon.com or other online book stores.  I have included a picture of the cover of the book for your convenience.
