Wow, you guys are all so nice to your horses! I feel like a meanie now. I usually don't do anything! Is that terrible? I get back from the ride and let her graze for a while with me. If it's been a long ride, I will loosen the girth a bit at a time before taking the saddle off. I never brush after a ride. I will check her legs and feet, but then off she goes to the paddock. If she is hot and sweaty, I will cool her down, but that's pretty rare. If it's that hot, it's usually too hot for me so we don't go out until it cools down outside.
