However, he gets sweaty SO easily, no matter how cold it is. To the point where after 5-10 minutes of trotting his shoulders and chest are covered in sweat. Even walking seems to get him hot. He's not in terrible shape but I suppose not in great shape either, but I seem to remember him having the same problem back in the fall when he was ridden regularly outside.
I've been riding him 3-5 times per week for about a half hour each time. It's frustrating on cold days when I have to dry him off...I end up spending more time drying off than I do riding!
Do some horses just naturally sweat a lot? It seems strange, and I've never seen this happen before. I really want to start working him harder but I'm afraid to get him drenched in sweat! Is there some other problem I may not be realizing?
