Let’s not put the saying ‘healthy as a horse’ to shame.
Horses are gentle yet tough creatures but rely on their owners for everything. If you own a horse, then it’s essential to make sure that they are looked after properly, fed sufficiently on time as well as given the complete attention that they deserve.
Owning a horse stable can be a delightful and rewarding experience. Horses are generally considered as tasteful and regal animals and are exceptionally admired by pet-lovers. Whether you keep them for riding, annual competitions, or simply as charming pets, a stable full of horses can instantly lift up anyone’s heart.
Do you ever wonder what it takes to clean a horse? The job definitely doesn’t get done on its own. You need time, equipment, and a whole lot of strength to thoroughly clean this magnificent beast.
Novice horse riders are usually under the impression that a splash of water and brush can do the trick. Whereas in reality there is a lot more to grooming than brushing.
How often do you groom your horse?
If you are one of those riders who groom their horses once a month or twice a month then boy you are in trouble. The esteemed British Horse Society advises horse riders to groom their four-legged friends every day. They believe that putting some elbow grease in cleaning your horses is highly beneficial for the animal’s well-being.
Do you agree that the beauty of a horse lies in their glorious mane?
Whether they are black beauties, whimsical white or earthy brown ones, all horses are proud of their silky smooth manes that shine under the sun.
Grooming your horse is extremely important for improvement of their appearance and health. It also gives you the opportunity to bond well with your horse. Regular grooming enhances blood circulation in its body. It increases the release of natural oils into the coat, allowing it to protect the horse against harsh weather in a more effective way. While grooming, you can also check its skin for any injuries.
