If your riding routine feels dull from mid-winter weariness, its time to pamper your pony— and yourself— with a new regimen! Whether you’re feeling tired of cold hands while riding, or your horse is becoming restless in his stall, don’t be afraid to mix things up. Trying out a different grooming tool or adding a fun distraction to your horse’s stall could bring some sunshine to both you and your equine’s winter routine!
As we reach the middle of the winter season, relentlessly cold weather can prevent us from full-body bathing and giving our horse’s coat the attention it needs. Much like human skin, horses coats become dry in the winter and need extra nourishment from shampoo and conditioner.
Behavioral issues in horses, particularly those actively competing, can be difficult to manage. Aggression, sullenness, and agitation affect your horse’s attitude and performance and can often be the result of hormonal imbalances. Whether you have a mare, gelding, or stallion that could benefit from hormonal supplementation, Perfect Products has developed Perfect Harmony EQ to help support healthy hormonal function and curtail hormone-related problem behaviors.
Keep calm and carry on… with the right calmers for your horse! Competitions and travel can be stressful for even the most stoic horses. Loud noises, weather changes, rider nerves, and other factors can distract your horse from his job, making him jumpy or nervous when you are trying to perform in the show ring.
They send hundreds of these horses through a training program to learn both flatwork and jumping skills. I had the good fortune to see how they train their 3 and 4-year-old warmbloods how to jump.
