to Giving Your Horse A Bath

When bathing a horse, you need to consider how dirty your horse is and how much time you have to give him a bath. Another deciding factor is temperature.

There are three main types of baths you could give your horse


Hot Toweling


Rinsing Off


Full Bath

Hot toweling is great for cold weather, even when it is snowing, because you never get your horse completely wet. This type of bath can take a bit of time to both setup and complete so you may only want to do so when absolutely necessary.
