Best practice for managing horses in the heat of summer
This year we are seeing soaring summer temperatures which means we need to be much more careful with our horses and we may need to adapt their routines accordingly.
Dr David Marlin has issued a best practice guidelines which you can view here.
All horses are at risk, but some are more at risk including : young horses, older horses, overweight horses, heavy/large horses, and those with health issues such as asthma or cardiac disease, cushings and colic prone horses.
The guidelines identifies how to recognise heatstroke/heat exhaustion in your horse and how to implement rapid cooling.
