So, I have gotten a lot of varying answers from the other owners at my barn on this issue. Some are very relaxed about it, others are very strict....
I ride about 5 times a week, most times working up a mild sweat under my saddle and in the armpit-areas and chest. I live in North Carolina, so spring has been nice, summers are very warm.
How often do I rinse off my horse, give him a full blown shampooed bath, or just let him dry au naturale? I want to avoid any problems caused by dried sweat without overreacting.
Also, how often to I rinse off or clean my saddle pad (tacky type pad) and wool liner on cinch?
