How often should my horse go toilet?

I never used to notice my horse peeing, but recently she has been peeing every 30 minutes or so.
None of my other horses are, they are going once or twice a day.
I do not think this is normal.
What should I do?
What could be causing this?
Any help greatly appreciated.

Well for starters, may I ask how old your horse is? Is she stalled? What are you feeding?

She is kept out in a paddock 24/7 with a good cover.
She gets 1.5 kilos of copra and around 5 slices of hay each day.
She is a SB and she is 12yrs old.
No, she is not in heat.

The first thing that comes to mind is cushings disease. But your mare seems pretty young. Cushing's usually affects horse in late teens and early 20's. Has there been any changes in her environment,such as: new horses, new surroundings? Sometimes if a horse is nervous they will pee excessively.

She had a new paddock mate (a 14.2hh SB gelding) (she is 15.2hh) around a fortnight ago but they are best friends, she is not acting any different and I ride her seperate from him.

If she's drinking and urinating more than normal, she could possibly be insulin resistant or in the early stages of Cushings. At her age it's unusual to get Cushings, but it's certainly not a rarity.

You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!
