Riding horses in the winter comes with a set of challenges. And riders know that one of the biggest ones is drying a sweaty horse after a cold ride. Because we don’t want our horses to catch a chill, we have to spend a lot of extra time making sure they’re dry. Another obstacle, if you use a blanket or sheet, is throwing it on a damp horse. Because we know this will only trap moisture on the skin, causing a new slew of issues.
How to Dry a Sweaty Horse in the Cold
The typical routine to dry a sweaty horse in the winter can vary. However, it typically includes extended cool out time, towel drying, and using a cooler to wick away moisture. Consequently, this eats up a lot more time. So, what if there was a way to cut down this time? All while ensuring your horse is dry AND protected from bacteria and fungus? Well, there is. It’s called COAT DEFENSE® daily PREVENTATIVE POWDER.

“I absolutely love this product. I use it after riding to absorb sweat, in between baths, to treat and prevent sweet itch on my sensitive horses, in the winter as a bathing alternative, and as a daily preventative and to treat / prevent scratches on my feathered horses. You can use this product for both dogs and horses with ease. The light mint scent is pleasant. It is a staple in my training program and my Great Danes love it too ! I do not go anywhere without it and I always have my tack room stocked!”Aubrey Burwell, Facebook Reviewer
