    Racing horses has been in our history for a very long time. It is said to have originated way back in the ancient times of Greece and Egypt. This equestrian sport, which provides entertainment to a lot of crowds ever since it has begun, had evolved throughout the years. This post is going to talk about a couple of horse racing tips that every person ought to know.

    What are the different types of horse races?

    Technically, there are two general types of horse races: the flat race and the jump race. As its name suggests, flat racing would require horses to race on flat turfs; whereas in jump racing, these four-legged creatures would have to jump or leap over obstructions and barriers that are strategically positioned in the race track. Ideally, flat races are shorter in comparison to jump races.

    What are the several factors to consider during a competition?

    The condition of the turf. The condition of the race course plays a vital role in the performance of the animal during the competition. This is simply due to the fact that some of the horses run better in wet tracks while the others would have a better performance in turfs that are dry.

    Distance of the race. Horses are very popular with regards to their stamina and endurance; which is why a lot of men and women would have this common notion that they can run for miles. Despite of this being true, the distance they will be running is still considered as an important factor in equestrian competitions. This is because some horses the distance can affect the pacing of the animal during the contest.

    Breeding and preference of the animal. Knowing the breed of the animal is rather important due to the fact that

    Liquid vitamins vs. pill form can be asked from several different positions, some of which are inter-related. The most notable consideration is quality followed by absorption ratio. Not unimportant is the cost of each. We view these variables all important but in my opinion nothing is more important than quality so the discuss that first.

    From a quality standpoint concerning liquid vitamins vs. pill vitamins the winner in this arena is “liquid vitamins”. Vitamins in pill form, to preserve the nutrients for shelf life, must be dried in a way that requires heating which is often times detrimental to the preservation of nutrients. The heating process is always a challenging aspect of preserving nutrients for shelf life of nutritional supplements. In 2000 I attended a conference where a keynote speech was given by the economist Paul Zane Pilzer who was giving a speech on the soon to be trillion dollar wellness industry. In his speech he cited the dismal quality record of vitamin manufactures with only 6 of the top 18 companies actually providing the nutrients that they claim on their packaging. These vitamin producers are rated by the NSF and 2/3 of the top 18 failed to measure up. We have had, until recently, few choices outside of pill form vitamins as they are easier to produce.

    It is, obviously, much easier to produce vitamins in pill form than liquid vitamins. The problem is, again, the drying process, which destroys important nutrients. Nutrient potency almost always suffers from the transportation process, whether by rail or truck, both of which expose the product to decay and environmental pollution. One of the down sides of farming and production is the time required to transport the raw form product to the manufacturer and this has a direct impact of the preservation of the important
