In today's video, Gobi, our horse groom shows us how he goes about bathing a horse.
Did you know....
1. To prevent the horse from sliding on the wet floor, the ideal wash rack should have non-slip rubber mats or a textured surface.
2. Before bathing the horse, get the horse accustomed to the water by spraying water around his legs, this will ensure the horse does not get startled.
3. Horses should be bathed sparingly. Frequent use of soap can remove too much of the natural oils in the horse's skin. It is ideal to bathe them at least once or twice a week.
4. Bathing a horse takes approximately 15 minutes.
