Handy Hint for Equestrian Horses - Coats

Coat colour and gloss in a horse can be enhanced, not only by feeding good quality feeds, with supplements of vitamin A, D, iron, zinc and copper to improve depth of colour but by the daily exercise program.


After working the horse until it warms up, air dry the coat by walking the horse for 10-15 minutes (don't hose off). Then while still warm, groom the coat to disperse the surfactant oils released from the sweat glands. Repeat this daily for 2-3 days - the coat will shine and be easy to maintain.
