Short summary
This study assessed the effects of training on haematological and biochemical blood parameters and body surface temperature changes in horses. Changes in body surface temperature and blood parameters in routinely ridden and never-ridden horses are associated with their different conditioning. Significantly higher surface temperature in routinely ridden horses as well as the dynamics of changes in some blood parameters after training may indicate the better performance of these horses.
