Keep your horse healthy this summer

With long hot days coming, it is important to make sure you and your horse are ready for summer. Here are some quick tips to keep your horse healthy this summer:

Shade and shelter – make sure your horse has access to a shady area or shelter so they can keep out of the sun’s rays and the flies on hot summer days.

Water – a constant supply of clean, fresh water is essential to prevent dehydration and prevent heatstroke in horses.

Salt lick – a salt lick will help replace vital nutrients that horses lose easily through sweating.

It is important owners take precautions to avoid their horses getting heat stroke as the severest cases can be fatal. Visit our member World Horse Welfare’s website to find out more.
