Pooping A Lot!

I have a mare that poops - a lot! She poops nearly constantly while being ridden. She will poop at least 10 times on an hour long ride. She sometimes only poops out one ball, but it always has gross juice with it. I've never had a horse that pooped so dang much. Is this normal at all?

Possibly nerves?

She's pretty relaxed and laid back. She doesn't seem nervous...

Some horses just poop a lot.. like my horse. It's a great thing, because they are less colic-y than horses who don't poop as much. As long as they don't get dehydrated, it's a great thing!

Sometimes there are little poop balls about every 20 foot or so. Just one ball at a time. I guess she's leaving a trail back to the house! Haha!

My husband had an arab and on the trail if he wasn't pooping he was passing gas. He never had a lick of colic!

Mac poops something like 7 times on every trail ride. In his case, it's nerves.

Activity stimulates the system, even in a horse w/out a never problem -- if your horse has nerves as well, then you have elimination overdrive. The fact that her poos are passing in single balls and have a juice factor is overactive elimination, not just normal activity stimulation. Overall, it's not a big problem - if/when it becomes excessive enough that her hydration and nutrition suffer from the excessive elimination, then it's time to worry about it.
