    It is a reference to working the horse more. If you say a horse needs more wet blanket time what the person is referring to is more training.

    Oh, did you mean to say "block certain areas" or is it actually called "blacking areas"?

    It is a nerve block. It is simply blocking the nerve so the horse does not feel pain. Normally in the feet or leg area.
