Every cold season the same question pops up: To rug or not to rug? In many stables riders rug their horses because everyone does it, without ever questioning if their horse really requires a blanket or not. We still believe that when we feel cold, so does our horse. Today I want to talk about the pros and cons of rugging, which horses need blankets and which can do without and the science behind it.
Do you have a story to tell? Or perhaps you know a special horse breed or horse culture or you have participated in an interesting sports or event? Feel free to contact us to become part of the Equestrian Adventuresses Podcast, the show for women who love horses, travel and adventure!
