There are new studies that say "cool" water is OK for hot horses to be bathed with. Post race, we bathe our horses in room temp water, walk, and give lots of room temp drinking water. They did a lot af reseatch before the GA olympics and the studies are pretty cool. The old ways of cooling out a horse and watering them are being disproven. I'll try and find the links for you, very interesting stuff!
