D3 Horse Management Question
Okay, I'm in need of help with this question.
Describe care of mount after strenuous work, to include cooling out, inspection of legs, watering and feeding.
Would this be the correct answer-
When you dismount, run up your stirrups, loosen the girth, but keep the saddle on. Walk pony out for about 10 minutes or until chest is cool and dry. When you are done walking pony out, untack and scrape the sweaty spots. Check for swelling, cuts, or heat on the legs. Then once the pony is cool and dry he can be given hay and water.
