I've used blow dryers in a pinch. They work pretty good. Horses don't get that thick undercoat like a dog & if they won't burn a person they won't burn a horse.
The best bet though is to use a fitted cooler or one of those big stretchy straps around the girth area if you have a square cooler. That way you can leave the horse in a stall until dry if you don't have time to walk him/her.

The lounge never gets used honestly expect winter rarely when using the heater.
I'm well aware the risk involved with a propane heater. It isn't as if I'll be stacking it on a hay bale. It will be on solid swept concrete away from any hazards. When used responsibly and approapriatly it will be fine.
Thanks for the input about a blow dryer. I was looking for peoples past experiences trying them :)
He has a fitted wool blend cooler on order now just waiting for it to arrive.

They do make hair dryers just for livestock too. We have this one at my university: Electro-Groom Electric Cleaner (Equine - Grooming - Grooming Aids - Dryers Vacumms)
Vacuums too.

I blowdried my whole horse after a bath, once. Took about a 1/2 hour & 2 cans of beer. This was a summer's evening, his tail looked fab! So now I always blowdry his tail after a bath, I love the look. I use an ionic blowdryer so I think it dries faster, does on my hair anyways. Now if it was winter, and the horse was sweaty, might take 2 hours & a six pack of beer.

Most of the riders at my barn blow dry their horses in the winter after a work out. The horses actually seem to enjoy it! :)
