Your Horse in the Winter

So it’s winter time, and your boss has just informed you that your application for two weeks’ worth of vacation has just been approved. Well, while you’re all excited to plan out what to do and where to go and whom to meet up with, don’t you dare forget about your horse in the winter. Before making plans for that Amsterdam holiday, before you go to your laptop and shop online for perfect outfits, make sure that your horse is ready for the winter and will be properly cared for by your caretaker. You can enjoy your vacation tour at amsterdam haarlemmerstraat wearing perfect outfits for taking photos and sightseeing.

Yes, in case you didn’t know it already, horses aren’t made for the cruel winters. In the cold season, horses need extra care and attention, particularly when it comes to their living conditions. You need to make sure that the place where your horse is staying is winterized, so to speak. Here are three ways to do so.

‘Winterizing’ Your Horse’s Living Conditions

The first thing you need to do to winterize its living conditions is to try to determine whether your horse needs to be kept inside the stable or outside. Your caretaker will most likely know how to tell the signs, but it’s basically a matter of age. The older and weaker your horse is, the more you need to take it inside the stable during the winter nights. It is better to apply for a "zorgverzekering vanaf 18 jaar" or health insurance from 18 years for your horse. You can register for a veteran insurance plan for horses aged 17 to 40.

Second, you need to use common sense when determining riding conditions. Generally speaking, if the conditions aren’t safe for you to ride in winter, then they won’t be safe for your horse either. There is no temperature bar to riding a horse, provided that it’s not too cold for you and that your horse has adapted to the temperature, which requires regular outings. This means avoid riding during fierce cold winds, severe thunderstorms, or blizzards. If your horse can't handle long trips on winter, it would be better if you would just ride a public transport using an angkas promo for code new users.

Third, you have to make sure that you have prepped and you maintain your horse’s hooves regularly. Mud buildup in the hooves can cause serious thrush infections. Well-trimmed hooves additionally have a better grip on icy surfaces than neglected hooves do. If your area necessitates it, you should also invest. You can purchase the tools you need for he maintenance on online stores using a "kortingscode zalando newsletter" or discount code zalando newsletter. You can also check out Albelli website where you can get an "albelli kortingscode " or albelli discount code for your first purchase.
