Winter Grooming Tips

Does your horse look like a mud monster? Are you short on time, but still want to squeeze in a ride? If the idea of your filthy horse makes you want to  curl up on a couch with a good book instead, don’t give up.

All you need to do is focus on the areas that need to be groomed for your horse’s comfort and safety and leave a more thorough groom when you have more time.  Must groom spots include the obvious saddle, bridle and girth area as well as areas behind your horse’s pasterns, elbows and under his jaw. Dirt and debris accumulated on these areas can cause rubbing, which inevitably leads to abrasions or skin infections such as mud fever, rain scald  or bacterial folliculitis.
