    Massaging with a sponge and hot water

    Sometimes when my mare & I had been working out in the arena while it had been raining (I don't have an indoor arena), I'd take her into her stall and run some warm water and get a sponge and sort of warm her up using this. She likes it and sort of shuts her eyes lightly. Afterwards I dry her off and give her a rug. Is this OK? Someone told me she could catch a chill, but I dry her off very thoroughly, all over. I think it's okay, but just thought I'd confirm.

    Does your horse stay in an indoor stable?
