Is it bad to bathe horses too much? Well I guess just rinse them off. I know showers make human shin drier, but I didnt know if it applied for horses too or? Like I ride or play with my horse every single day and he always, always gets sweaty. Since sweat attracts flies I always hose him off before I turn him back out for the day. I don't care if he gets dirty but he stays pretty clean, but I don't like him to stay sweat. So is it bad for me to hose him off every day?
