TEMPERATURE: CoolerA cooler is a wool or eece covering for your horse that allows heat to dissipate without making your horse cold. Both of these materials have wicking properties that remove the moisture from your horse’s coat, allowing it to dry.If your horse is very sweaty and you have two coolers available, swap them out when you see moisture bead up on the one covering your horse. Moisture on the outside of the cooler means it is too damp to wick away any more sweat.Additionally, if you have an Irish knit sheet, it can be helpful to place this on the horse rst, under the cooler. The holes in the knit will create a layer of warm air to help dry their coat, while the cooler will wick away and absorb the moisture.There are a few additional ways you can dry your horse as rapidly as possible. 1. Thatching. Place ued up hay or straw under the cooler and directly against his skin. The hay or straw will capture the horse’s naturally dissipating heat and create warmth to dry the damp hair more quickly.2. Toweling. Rub o the sweaty areas in vigorous circles will also help, as will using a cloth dampened with rubbing alcohol. 3. Baby powder or corn starch will also absorb sweat without the drying eect that rub-bing alcohol can sometimes have.Once your horse’s coat is dry, you can safely turn him out or put him back in his stall. It’s especially important that he be dry if you’ll be putting on a turnout blanket, as these will trap moisture, keeping his coat wet and potentially causing discomfort.

Electric currents carried by wiring, switches, plugs and appliances generate heat. Exces-sive or uncontrolled heat can start res. To help prevent electrical res, know how to use and store plugs and electrical cords and take these precautions: • Don’t run cords under hay, bedding, or other combustible materials; also avoid placing cords across doorways or frequently traveled areas• Discard frayed or broken cords and never splice two cords together.• Don’t overload outlets or use extension cords in place of outlets. Call an electrician to install additional outlets as necessary.• Ensure plugs t snugly in outlets to prevent shock and excess heat.To prevent an electrical re, learn to recognize the warning signs that indicate a possible wiring or electrical problem. Contact a licensed electrician immediately to examine and repair electrical problems if you experience any of the following issues:• Flickering or dimming lights• Switches or outlets that are hot to touch and/or emit an acrid odor• Discolored cords, outlets and switch plates• Repeatedly blown fuses and tripped circuit breakersUnderstanding the common causes, warning signs and appropriate safety measures can help prevent an electrical re. The most common causes for electrical res are:• Incorrectly installed wiring• Overloaded circuits and extension cords• Defective or improper plugs, switches and outlets• Misuse and poor maintenance of lightingFinally, consider a licensed electrician to inspect (especially structures prior to 1973) and make all repairs to ensure wiring is safe and to code.FIRE: Electricity

TRAINING: WalkIf the horse is sti, lacks straightness, or is hollow, the best pace in which to train him out of these habits is the walk.If you use the walk with cavaletti, the horse’s body has more time to adjust to a new way of going without interference from the larger muscles that work during paces with more impul-sion.In the walk, you can teach the horse’s body to respond to new motor and sensory nerves, release areas that are restricted and tight, and increase the range of joint mobility in his joints.As your horse develops more exion in the hock joints and stie, his exor and quadriceps muscles will engage more, leading to an improved balance between the bottom and topline muscle chains, a more supple back, and longer, more elastic strides.

Exercise 1:Take up a light contact and walk your horse through two cavaletti spaced about two feet seven inches apart.Add more cavaletti so that you have three and then four.As you negotiate the cavaletti, allow your horse to stretch down the rein.Exercise 2:Place 4 poles into a square.Keep riding through the center of the square, turn-ing either left or right, to ride a complete four-leaf-clover pattern.Exercise 3:Lay several poles in a line and ride a tight serpen-tine over the poles.

NUTRITION: SaltAccess to salt, specically a quality mineral salt lick or loose salt, is absolutely essential for horses. Hay and pasture grasses contain little salt, so providing a free-choice salt lick or loose salt helps sodium levels stay balanced and stimulates a horse to keep drinking. Without salt supplementation, some horses won’t consume enough water on their own, and risk becoming dehydrated—which may lead to impaction or other life-threatening problems.Salt is the most crucial mineral horses require—and most will self-regulate and consume enough to meet their needs without overindulging. Salt is also water-soluble, so a horse nat-urally balances salt intake by drinking water to ush out any excess. Active horses require 2-4 tbsp. of salt per day. Here are some tips to ensure your horse is getting enough:• Granulated salt free choice• Mined sea salt free choice• A salt rock or lick• Add up to 1 tbsp of salt of choice to supplements or grains at meal time(s)COMING SOON! PRO Series by Pink Rose Organix is a nutrient dense and buildable feed system that utilizes only the best USDA-organic and scientically proven ingredients to pro-vide your horse with optimal nutrition. PhD formulated, PRO Series ensures your horse is getting the best balance of necessary ingredients for joint protection and immunity, skin and hoof integrity, growth and muscle development, ber digestion and energy metabolism.
