sweating?

What is 'sweating'? I've heard of people talking about 'sweating' a horse. What is it?

If there are no horses in heaven... im not going.

At least around here, 'sweating' a horse was a term used to mean working a horse until it was sweating, but I haven't heard it used in some time.

On the sixth day, God created the Quarter Horse.
On the seventh day, he Painted the good ones.

Has to do with the neck, if I remember correctly. I think halter people put a sort of neck sweater on the horse, which gives the neck a more shapely appearance...?

/not a halter person, can't you tell? XD

Wait! I'll fix it....

You got it. Halter people use a neoprene type neck sweat to get a more refined looking neck/jaw area.

The term can also be used as in sweating a tendon. Its an older treatment for bowed or swelled tendons that involves dmso and saran wrap. It helps get the edema out.
