In the winter it is best to avoid bathing if possible. If your horse is young or old, then it is more recommended to not bathe them during the cold weather. There are other options to keeping your horse fresh and clean though. One option that you have is NAF warming wash. This body wash allows you to clean sweat and grease out of your horse. This wash only includes Ginger and Clary sage to wash and cleanse your horse on those cold wintery days. It doesn’t include any soap, detergents or thickening agents in the formula making it a very gentle wash. The dirt and grease are lifted leaving a slight fragrance leaving your horse smelling nice and being clean without the stress of your horse being too cold using water in the winter.
Another option is Pet Head Dry Clean Waterless Spray Shampoo. It is blueberry muffin scented, it sprays on dry coats and doesn’t need rinsing meaning its perfect to freshen your horse up in the winter.
Grooming is a great way to bond with your horse other than riding, it can be both relaxing for you and the horse.
