Smile 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.

Thanks! =)

On the cooling out question, I would mention monitoring the horse's breathing as well as body temperature. You walk the horse until their breathing is down to the resting rate as well as body temp back to normal. "Untack and scrape the sweaty spots" sounds incomplete as well. Depending on temp, you either sponge off and then scrape the sweaty spots, or towel dry.

As for your other question, labored breathing and resistance are good answers. Struggling with the work and excessive sweating/overheating are also good indications.

#1 sounds ok except for "untack and scrape sweaty spots". If it is summer you can sponge off the sweaty spots, if not you can rub them dry with a towel. Horse should then be groomed till coat is smooth and his feet picked out. If you just "scrape the sweaty spots" the horse will dry crunchy and uncomfortable.

#2 would be resistance to cues, an unhealthy amount of sweat, labored breathing, or soreness after a ride.

Good Luck!
