    Horse rolling

    So I rode my guy last night. After I cleaned him up and put him in his stall/paddock he went outside and rolled in the dirt! I assume this is normal behavior but he sure looked funny -- feet up in the air rubbing his back!

    Totally normal and quite funny to watch. My horses do it after every ride and bath. Which is why I make them stand there to dry before I turn them lose after their baths.

    I will have make him stand to dry next time. I will be riding him again tonight and then bathing him. He will be by a tree drying in the sun this time. Thanks!! It is very funny though

    Yep, the mare I lease does this as well. She will find the biggest pile of dust she can and just cover herself.

    Sure makes her a joy to groom the next time I pull her out!

    Yeah its pretty inevitable that a horse WILL roll after a bath...Definitely helps if they are dry before you turn them out!

    That's the horse's way of grooming themselves. It will help break up any hair that's clumped with dried sweat and it will help to dry any wet sweat.

    Oh yes its very normal. I love it when my gelding does it, even if I don't ride him I just catch him and tie him up, he still does it after I release him lol.
