    MayfieldK, I would reallylike to know who actually studied that. Not because I don't believe all of it, just because im always interested, because i've seen a lot of high high level horses and riders be mislead. But most of all that maes sense and I agree.

    I do like to start on the legs after cooling m horse out, ten working up to their back, not slowly, I just start there because if I suddenly spray Rena with cool or any temp wateron her back without starting low then she gets started and clenches all her back/tummy muscles and I don't like to see that, lol she's such a princess.

    Personaly I'll chuck freezing cold water over my lot at any time. When I bath a horse I start behind the ears and work backwards with the hose.

    I wont give him freezing water when they are very hot. I always offer a small amount of Tepid water ASAP, then walk them off and then give them cool water.

    I've never seen giveing freezing water cause colic but I have seen it cause discomfort hence I give tepid water or cool water but not COLD water.
