The joy of a healthy, powerful horse cannot be expressed in words. The relationship between man and horse is something very special. Especially if a horse is to be used in high performance sport, “winning genes” are important for the horse to be successful.
Whether a horse is capable of winning races/tournaments depends on many factors. However, if the basic physical and psychological characteristics are missing, it takes a lot of effort and expense for a horse to become a champion. In the worst case, the horse remains without a single victory, or ends up average.
With a horse, considerable maintenance costs apply. Victories are part of the finance plan. Hereditary diseases, congenital diseases or other deficiencies can be revealed by hair analysis. If the purchase of a race/tournament horse is being considered, certain organs of the horse may be “stricken”. For example, hairline fractures of major arteries (e.g., aorta) can also be detected. A horse with such a deficiency, may no longer be used in high performance sports, because otherwise an arterial rupture threatens.
This shows why an assessment of the performance potential is necessary.
