Keeping horses warm in winter (exercising!)
Do you ride your horses in rugs/bandages or anything of the like to get their muscles warm faster or keep them warm during the winter?
My boy is a thick 16.1hh, and is always hurting himself muscle wise in the paddock(back especially), so I make sure to warm him up extra well undersaddle, especially during winter. He has had a bowed tendon before also (in his racing career)
Would it help to use fleece bandages, or an exercise rug or anything like that? Does anybody on this forum do that for any reason?
I'd just go for taking longer to warm up during colder months. In winter, I personally sometimes take as much as 20 minutes for walking and some stretching exercises only, if I feel it is necessary.
It certainly seems so, your horse is in good hands. :)
