Can I give him a bath?

Hey guys my horse is caked with mud right I have lessons in the upcoming week so he needs to be clean. Can I give him a bath this Friday the water is not heated but can I give him bath dry him and throw a blanket on? This Friday it is supposed to be a high of 16 with a 60% chance of showers.
Thank you Tasia

You could probably give him a sponge bath, as you could carry hot water to your barn in a couple of bottles, mix with your barn water, and some shampoo. I would sweat scrape him immediately and blanket right away as well.

I'm not sure I would give him a full bath, unless it is really warm and sunny out. And even then, get as much water off, and then blanket right away.

Why do you need to have a clean horse for lessons?

LOL his made me laugh sooooo hard! I was thinking the same thing!

Please don't bathe in weather that is a high of 16 ... do the sponge bath if anything and make sure you put a blanket on *just to dry* and put your horse somewhere out of the weather *like a stall* till completely dry.
