Excessive urination while on the trails..

Hi all. Its been awhile, but I know I can always get good information when I come here with my horses issues.. I have a 14 yr.old TW. Great horse, manners, personality etc.. He seems to urinate ALOT while trail riding. My vet won't be here until 5-10-16... Yesterday he urinated 5 times during a 2 hr. ride. He doesn't seem uncomfortable or in pain. He just had a sheath cleaning in March, had several large beans. I just got him in March as well so don't know a whole lot about his history except he has been unridden for 3 years due to owners disinterest in him... Any ideas as to what is going on with him and any ideas what type of treatment the vet might suggest ? Thanks everyone!

Did the urine look normal?

Were other horses urinating also or just him?


There is no joy equal to that found on the back of a horse.

This is only when being ridden on the trails? Not handwalking, nor ridden in an arena, nor on his own time?

I've known some horses to stretch out to pee under saddle, but I'm surprised he had enough liquid to actually pee that many times!

It could be a sign of nervousness or excitement.

Are you able to tell the colour, concentration and odour? My little guy would pee a tonne when I had him in the barn, it was small amounts, highly concentrated, smelly, and looked like egg yolks. Moved barns and he stopped for the most part. My theory is that the water at the old place had too much calcium and he wasn't able to process it normally.

Is there a vet around you that does acupuncture? I'm a skeptic, but one acupuncture treatment and my horse would be back to normal for a month or so.

My thoughts were two things: he might just be a nervous pee-er or he may be leaving a scent trail for himself should he need it to get home.

You spend your whole life with horses and just about the time you think you have them figured out, a horse comes along that tells you otherwise. quote from my very wizened trainer
