Horse Diseases:
Information on Diagnosis, Symptoms and Possible Equine Treatments

Equine illness isn't something most laypersons understand at all, but when you own a horse learn as much as you can about the injuries and sickness that can afflict our equine friends. Prevention is a great part of maintaining the health of your horse: proper nutrition, safety, hoof and leg care and prompt treatment of lameness or illness can help stop disease or injury from harming your horse further. Becoming aware of the various common ailments will also help you address the small things and prevent them from becoming big, unmanageable health problems.
Knowing when to call the vet is crucial: sometimes a simple medical intervention such as antibiotics or assistance in a difficult birth can save your horse's life. Learn the ways your horse may tell you he isn't feeling right; changes in mood, stride, eating habits can clue you in to something that may be going on. If you know the causes and symptoms of various ailments, you may be able to spot them sooner. Talking with your veterinarian or Farrier and asking questions during routine wormings, vaccinations or hoof care can make you more savvy about what professional horse people know.

Horse Tack & Riding Equipment Maintenance

Tack needs to be maintained religiously. Synthetic tack can be hosed down or washed in the washing machine. It's lighter in weight, easy to care for, and less expensive than leather. Leather, needs much more care. Inspect it every time you clean it. Wash it every time you use it, and then oil the leather parts a few times a year.
