Is there any tricks to help stop seat from foaming?? I've heard feeding apple cider vinegar with oats helps, but are there any little tricks? My horse sweats up really easy and when it foams it looks like I'm riding her into the ground!
I don't know, like I said I thought it was a nervous thing. I had a horse that was fine working cattle outside but if we were in the pens or running cattle up an alley he would get a good lather/foam on him and was as nervous as a whore in church.
Come to find out when the previous owner bought him he got thrown in on a deal buying bulls. The guy threw him in the trailer with 3 bulls, got him home, back the trailer up to the pens, opened the back door. The colt jumped out of the trailer and cleared three fences before stopping.(his wife was a dressage/hunter/jumper trainer and still didn't want to ride him because he was known to buck) Anyhow I think that he was very nervous "penned" up with cattle and that was when he lathered.
Maybe it goes hand in hand, when a horse gets nervous he gets hot...
