    How often do you use linament? What kind do you use and how?

    I just started using it, I bought some cheap stuff, the Horsemans Choice or something like that, it smells minty. I have been rubbing it on Ri's back legs after I ride...

    Just looking for thoughts, opinions, brands... etc....

    We keep good old Absorbine around, but typically only use it on recovering sprains after a couple days of icing.
    The mares do seem to like a linament rubdown, but I haven't been able to teach them to give me one in return

    I bought a bottle of Absorbine after Ice almost passed out he was so relaxed when I used liquid liniment to give him a bath. I think I'm going to start applying it before we work, maybe even every other day sort of thing, to see if it makes a difference in his comfort level. The first time I put on the gel on his joints, he was almost giddy. It made me giggle.

    I stick with absorbine. It seems to work the best and I've tried a few! After a long ride Ill put a cup of absorbine in a bucket of water and wipe the sweat and muck off of him and give him a little absorbine bath. I have to drag him to his stall he's so relaxed!

    I don't recall what brand it is but we use a liquid liniment. I mix it with water and then sponge bathe my horse with it after a really good workout or when it's hot out.

    I can't say my horse particularly likes or dislikes it..... just stands there staring at the grass on the other side of the fence and then when I'm done, runs for the grass. She definitely didn't care for the scent of it when she insisted on sticking her head in the bucket!
