VIDEO: Nutrition for the Equine Athlete with Russell Mueller

The 2017 USEA Annual Meeting and Convention may have come and gone, but thanks to our friends at Ride On Video you will have the chance to relive the action as we share videos of the different sessions!

Your horse’s nutrition can have a great impact on their competition performance and post-competition recovery. Nutrients such as protein, amino acids, fat sources, mineral interactions, and water intake all play a huge role in your horse’s success, in both daily training and intense competition. In this presentation, Russell Mueller discusses some of the latest nutritional technologies that can optimize health and muscle fueling, function, and repair and how you can apply what you’ve learned to lead to greater success and a happier horse.

Russell Mueller has a B.S. in Animal Science from Kansas State and a M.S. in Equine Nutrition from Oklahoma State. He is currently the Innovation and NPSS Manager for Cargill Animal Nutrition. Russell has developed nutrition programs for farms of all sizes for the Cargill Equine Enterprise Team including Disney World and has conducted nutritional seminars all over
the country. He was the research leader for the Progressive Nutrition Research Trial and presented clinical rounds at K-State and CSU veterinary schools. Russell is a lifetime AQHA member and an AQHA champion competitor.
