Mine usually get hosed off after every ride. And if they don't get hosed... they get a good brushing. It a lot of the time depends on how many horses im riding. Since I train and work full time. There are times im riding six horses from 4:30pm till 9 at night. Then usually they only get brushed. But my personal horses get a bath once a week. And I do keep them clipped. Whiskers, the whiskers by there eyes (not the lashes), bridle path, under the chin and ears. I don't like hairy horses.
Many people have sighed for the 'good old days' and regretted the 'passing of the horse,' but today, when only those who like horses own them, it is a far better time for horses. ~C.W. Anderson
