I just started my 3 1/3 year old mare lightly under saddle (2-4 times a week w/t) and even though she will not break a sweat while working she will start sweating about 10 minutes after I'm done riding her.
I might have to mention that she is not a hyper horse and is very relaxed/quiet when ridden.

I used to ride a WB show jumper that did this but he was full body clipped, stalled and blanketed so it wasn't a big deal to get him dry again.

My girl is out 24/7 and in thick winter woolies already. If I blanket her, she will sweat underneath the blanket so that's not an option.

On Saturday they must have felt the snow coming and ran accross our pasture a few times (about 2 miles in total at a full gallopp) and she was soaken wet when they came home.
I can put a cooler on her but that doesn't really cover the worst area on her neck, unless I buy one that goes all the way over her head and that won't stay on for more than 5 min. Knowing her!
Also, we get very cold winters (down to -40 degrees celcius) and I'm not home during the day, therefore I can not monitor her after every run in the field...

Does anyone know if there is anything that can be done to prevent a horse from after-sweating?

You could always just clip her under the neck.......there would be no need ot blanket with that small of a clip.
