But horses that tie normal start sweating profusing and continue to sweat after they are put back in the stall at least both horses that I have had tie up did this. There first one was when I worked for a trainer who worked the cramp out of this mare trying to get somewhere (didn't agree with) then she was soo tired afterword that we walked her a little bit then put it in her stall and took the water out, she then started sweating more and was crampy in the back. The second one my husband and I were riding in VA mountains and not even an hour into the ride (it was Nov so it was cool and this horse had be ridden all summer and was in great shape) his mare started becoming very sluggish which was odd for her she always lead, then she started refusing to go, and was sweating horribily. I knew from the last time the vet had told me you don't want to make them move (because they don't want to) so we had to drag her onto the road, and my husband had to go get the trailer to take her back. We did electrolytes and selenium and she was fine afterwards. Since my sister's horse wasn't continueing to sweat and didn't act crampy on her back but in her abdomine area. The part that was odd that she kept curlin her lip and then when she did lay down she was laying up right and not kicking at her stomach.
