Head Tossing

My horse seems to be irritated by dust in the inside arena. Her nose crinkles up drastically causing her to snort and toss her head. Has anyone ever concocted some type of nose covering that may help? She is on Cyproheptadine which has helped a lot until recently. Thanks.

Can you not hose down the arena?

I've seen someone that had sewed a kind of nose cover from a net material. She said that it helped but could not take the problem completely away because if you use a very fine net, the horse can't breathe properly.

Are you (your horse) the only one to have problems in that arena?

In any case I would also say that you'll need to water the arena.

Well, it was hosed down last night. So I'll see if that makes a difference.
