How often do you bathe your horses?

How often do you give your horses baths?

I don't bathe my horses very often. They don't like it, so I just stick to regular grooming.

Only before a horseshow, so about 6 times a year.

About twice a month during the summer. Sometimes more if I've worked him a lot and he's really sweaty.. but I generally never bathe aside from summer unless it's warmer out and he needs a good hosing.

My ranch horses have never been bathed. I won't with them unless they get into something. Like paint or oil (that's never happened).

I groom polo horses in the summer and bathe them after every practice and game. The white one gets bathed before every practice and game (ugh - I really don't have time, either).

I never bath my horse. She just goes out and rolls all of the time. Before a show would be the best.

During show season, we have shows every weekend. So, pretty much every weekend. My horses love it though...

Before shows. Sometimes if the weather is warm I'll do it just for fun. I wash manes and tails a lot though.

Mine get hosed down after just about every ride during summer when they get sweaty.

As for a bath though they only get on occasionally if they are really dirty and I feel they need it.

I wash them as soon as the temps in the spring allow, to wash off the winter grunge. After that, mostly hosing after rides or when one has decided that nice mud hole was just what he needed! I don't show, so it's just to remove any accumulation of fly sprays or dried sweat. Plus, both mine like a good hosing.

Bathed before shows, and hosed off during the summer if they are sweaty
