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.

If it rains just take him out in it with a rubber curry and scrub him

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.
