    I only bath if I am going to a show. About 98% of my horses prefer the color mud instead of the color of there coat. So after a while I just don't bath and pretty much curry and brush everything out. But after a long workout in summer I do rise them down.

    I never bathe them. I do sometimes hose their legs off and lower body if they are covered in sand and salty water from riding on the beach or if they are really sweaty.

    I do the same as most others. If they are used hard and get really sweaty, I will give them a good rinse with the hose but I very seldom give actual baths with shampoo. Most of our horses haven't had a real bath in years.

    Full bath about every two weeks. I will hose mine down all the time though. It gets extremely hot here in the summer so I rinse mine every time I ride. I hate leaving sweat on a horse because it's bad for their skin. We have a water hose pretty close to our pasture and if they are at the fence I'll spray them. They will stand there under the water as kong as I spray them. I also take mine swimming lot. I have a big pond at my house and they love that..I don't spend a whole lot on soap for them, most of the time I use Mane and Tail stuff. Another soap I like is the Dove for sensitive skin. It's good stuff.

    I'll answer this with the full knowledge that there is currently 60"s of snow outside my window and and ice storm coming tonight. I only use "soap" when we're going to a show. Otherwise I just rinse him when he's hot. Too much use of soap upsets their skin ph and seems to bring on more problems than help.

    Whenever I feel they could use one, or whenever I feel like giving them one :) Which is not often at all. I do enjoy playing in the water though

    I usually only bathe before a show and when at a show. Jesse just loves laying down in a stall and always gets dirty so there is a lot of spot cleaning. But regularily in the summer I will just hose off his legs and when he's really sweaty I'll hose him off, I don't usually bathe them though.

    I hose off after every ride during the summer, it gets so hoottttt. And they're usually covered in sweat no matter how in shape they are. I go all out and shampoo and condition tails usually once a week if I'm riding the horse regularly. Just so they smell all good :)
