What causes them? How do I get rid of them?
A few of my horses at camp are having issues with cinch sores and I've been trying to get them to heal but they just don't seem to want to. Even Lacey has one that just won't go away. So I need help.
I need these horses to be working too, I can't just give them time off either which really stinks. I'm going to try to give them as much time off this week as possible to hopefully heal but they will probably still have to "work" for at least 3-4 hours (as opposed to 6-8 hours) every day unless I get super lucky.
I've been riding Lacey mostly bareback and that's been good to her sore but it opened back up again on Thursday when I had to use a saddle. The other horses however don't have that option.
Are felt cinches or string better? Currently I'm using mostly string but the mare (and Lacey) that has it the worst is in a felt cinch since she's too little for any of the string ones I have on hand.
