Salt, potassium chloride, magnesium sulphate, calcium lactate and silicon dioxide.

Equine America Apple Lytes was formulated by Bruce Snipes, creator of Cortaflex®, who pioneered the feeding of electrolytes to horses in the 1960s.

As horses work and sweat they lose vital electrolytes and mineral salts. At low levels these can be replaced with sodium chloride (salt) but, if the horse is in medium to hard work and sweating on a daily basis, an electrolyte supplement must be provided. Without electrolytes, the horse will feel lethargic, and a continuation of this loss is highly detrimental to the horse’s health.

As the main electrolyte is a salt (sodium chloride) it is important to use a salt granular based product (not a solution) as it is not possible to suspend enough of the mineral salts needed within a solution.

Apple Lytes is a salt-based product which can be added to the feed on a daily basis. For high level competition and endurance events, Apple Lytes is also available in a handy syringe for instant replenishment of electrolytes. Electrolytes should not be fed to a dehydrated horse - always ensure water has been ingested first, and that the horse has recovered from exercise.

When should you feed Apple Lytes?

  • Feed daily to horses or ponies in hard work, especially those who are sweating.
How does it work?
Apple Lytes replaces essential electrolyte salts lost through sweating. The main electrolyte lost is sodium choride - salt. Therefore, any electrolyte replacement supplement should be salt based.

Apple Lytes is an electrolyte replacement product and should only be used once the horse is rehydrated.


For an average 500 kg horse, feed 56 g of Apple Lytes daily with the horse’s regular feed or mix into 15 litres of the horse's drinking water. Feed others according to body weight, less for smaller horses and ponies, and more for larger breeds. Introduce gradually into the feed.

Available in:
  • 1.8 kg tub (1 month supply at maintenance)
  • 6.8 kg tub (3.5 month supply at maintenance)
  • 13.6 kg tub (7 month supply at maintenance)

The product is probably pretty good, but my horse would not eat it no matter what - therefore it is only getting 1 star from me!
