Horse Care Tips
Here are some helpful guides and links to help you understand what it takes to care for your horse.
As many as 50% of equestrians lack education regarding their horse’s physiological responses to environmental temperatures, which can pose quite a risk to the welfare of an animal. Sometimes even good intentions lead to undesirable consequences. For instance, on warm January days at our stable I’ve removed clients’ heavy blankets only to discover a sweaty horse underneath. The clients never asked barn staff to manage their blanketing.
Monitoring the weather and being able to make blanketing changes, or have them done for you, is just another layer of responsibility for horse owners. Of course, not all horses nor environments are created equal. Have questions about blanketing? See the guides we posted in the link.
