This is kind of off topic, but since it is related I thought I would ask it here:

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?

Depends on the horse, some horses skin will dry out, some wont. If your horse is sweaty, baby powder (as I mentioned before) is very helpful, apply it with a dandy brush, and then use a curry to work it into the skin. If he's very wet, using a dry cloth as a curry to remove the excess sweat beforehand will make the baby powder more effective.

Also, I forgot to mention that the baby powder will help get rid of the sweaty smell and that in and of itself is helpful for curtailing flies.
