The sun is hot and the air is pristine, but what do you need to know to keep your horse clean, comfortable and cool this Summer?
Whether you are leisurely hacking at home, or cranking it up a notch competing actively in training and riding, Summer grooming is essential for the health and comfort of your horse.
Trim, Trim, Trim
Coat, Mane, and Tail care is an essential part of keeping your horse cool in hot weather. Regular clipping, especially for those with longer coats helps to release some heat and helps your horse cool down. Whilst some coat is important to provide insulation and protection from the sun, just be mindful of keeping it trim.
Keeping it Cool
Hosing off or sponging down at the end of a workout can be a rather refreshing relief from the heat and can help to remove any sweat and dirt! The Nettex No Rinse Washes are ideal for this…simply sponge over your horse, and either leave to dry or scrape using a sweat scraper. Of course, you can rinse off with a hose if you wish, but you don’t have to…it’s super easy! Available in either a cooling Peppermint to refresh and invigorate or calming Lavender to soothe and relax.
