Spring Horse Care

As raindrops dance upon the awakening earth, the spring rainy season beckons, signaling a time of renewal for your cherished horses. Join us in exploring essential tips and trusted products to ensure the health and happiness of your equine companions.


As we welcome the rejuvenating spring season, ensuring the well-being of your horse becomes paramount, especially in unpredictable and rainy weather. Spring turnout season heralds a time of transition for horses, from stabling to pasture, where they can graze and exercise freely. However, with the onset of rainy weather, specific challenges arise that horse owners must address to maintain the health and happiness of their animals.


To optimize the turnout experience for your horses during the spring season, here are three essential tips to implement:


Shelter Access

Providing ample access to shelters during periods of rain is crucial. Horses should have the opportunity to seek refuge and stay dry when the weather turns inclement. Shelter access helps prevent issues like rain rot and ensures that horses remain comfortable and content even during wet conditions.


Rotational Turnout

Implementing rotational turnout is key to preventing overgrazing in specific areas, minimizing mud development, and ensuring a more even ground surface. Rotational turnout allows pastures to recover and regrow, promoting healthier grazing conditions for horses while reducing the risk of injuries caused by uneven terrain.


Foot Care

Regularly checking and cleaning hooves is essential to prevent issues related to wet and muddy conditions. Wet and muddy environments increase the risk of hoof ailments such as thrush and abscesses. Proper foot care involves cleaning hooves thoroughly and ensuring they remain dry to minimize the risk of infection and discomfort for the horse.
