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.
You may have noticed your horse is a little sweatier after hard rides. Maybe he’s a little muddier after he comes in from the field. Or maybe she leaves a little more hair on your clothes after a grooming session. Longer, more difficult to manage coats growing in can only mean one thing… it’s time to break out the clippers.
