It’s hot here on the farm, so we’re making sure that the water tanks are all in working order and checking each horse to see if anyone’s under stress.
You can help your horse by riding or exercising him or her early in the morning – stables open at 8 so you’ll have an hour or two to ride comfortably. When you turn your horse back out, offer him or her a drink. You can lead them to water and, well, you know the rest!
Hose your horse down after a ride or just for fun. Start at the hooves and work your way up to his back and neck. Please re-coil the hose and turn off the pump. Push the excess water out the back door to keep the floor’s grip.
Remember to stay cool yourself!
