Keeping your horse happy and healthy this winter

The winter can be an awful time for horses, the bitter cold and wet weather means they are not getting as much exercise as they might be used to, and just like us, they will want to be kept as warm and comfortable as possible.


A horse’s coat can usually tolerate winter weather with few problems if owners pay attention to basic feeding and management principles.

Make sure your horse is kept warm when they have been worked or clipped and have no natural oils in their coats. The best way to do this is by putting a rug on them when the temperature starts to really dip.
