Horse Health Information and Equine Care

When you begin to care for the health of a horse, there's so much to learn that it may seem impossible to learn it all. From the daily care of hooves to maintaining your horse's teeth, joints and internal health, you are responsible for a lot of animal! Keeping your horse healthy involves choosing the right feed, watching out for colic and other digestive problems, paying attention to foot and leg issues, riding with the proper tack, correct grooming, regular vaccinations and deworming, and a hundred other details.
Horse Health
Like humans, horses are affected by weather, need to be housed and fed properly, and may experience sprains, strains and soreness of the back and legs. Illness or pain affect not only the way they move but the way they feel, so that a healthy horse will tend to be happier than one who isnít feeling up to snuff. Some illnesses or injuries appear first as changes in mood; your normally jolly or equable equine may become moody, surly or unwilling when there's something physically wrong that hasn't yet appeared as lameness, sickness or other injury.

The Right Saddle for Cutting or Reining

For cutting and reining horse events, you definitely need a saddle thatís designed to help you "ride in balance and sit the stop." First, you want a saddle that was designed and built specifically for reining or cutting. Both of these designs have their individual advantages but remember, just because the manufacturer "calls" it a reining saddle doesnít mean it was designed "well" for reining.
