Horse merely sweats contained by saddle nouns, should I clip? ?
My mare only sweats in the saddle area seldom on the neck but it takes forever for her to dry before I can put her backbone out. Should I clip? If so would only a full clip help or would a trace clip do the trick?
I actuality she is sweating all over, you see it contained by the saddle area for two reasons: 1. it can't evaporate because of the saddle 2. the saddle is pressing down making it come to the surface of her fur. Horses own different layers of hair. There is a small short layer of mane that helps water proof and cool their skin. If your saddle is on that, it doesn't do that.
She will be ok. Just brush her after you ride to help move that spine around and dry off. She can be turned out with it still damp. She'll be ok.
No, I would not clip her saddle area. Even when you do a full body clip you bestow a patch where the saddle goes to prevent rubbing and chafing. I would recommend using a curry comb rather than brushing the nouns. Brushing would make the hair lay flat and trap moisture. Using a curry comb would allow air circulation underneath the wet hair and allow it to dry faster. If you are really in a hurry, or she starts sweating more, you may want to curry her and consequently put a fleece or wool cooler on her. This would really help to wick moisture. If you are lucky enough to be in a barn beside cross ties and electricity, you could always blow dry her. Just make sure you return with her used to it first and make sure it doesn't get too hot!
my horse sweats after riding where the saddle was and all i do is consent to her rest. or you could try brushing her
i would not clip.
take a half cup of white viniger append to hot water.
use a well wrung out sponge and scrub her saddle/girth area near the mixture. the viniger cuts the sweat so her hair will dry quicker. it makes it so it is not a sticky matted down mess, and it dry much faster. i am not a big fan of clipping and blanketing, and it does not nouns like she sweats enough to warrent that. if you really inevitability to, do a modified trace cip removing as little hair as possible, and def., keep her flanks and kidney area hirsute, as she is not sweating there and she needs that hair to stay heat up. if you trace clip you'll need to blanket. seems close to a lot of work for a sweaty saddle area.
Depends seriously on how much you are working her.
The problem with clipping the saddle-pad area is it's more prone to rubbing and saddle sores. Is she being blanketed in a minute? If not that is something you might want to think about whether it's possible. By blanketing her you'll cut down on the 'fluff' and produce a more sleek coat which allows sweat to dry quickly.
do not clip, no want unless it's show or summer. And yes, it's normal for a horse that's worked hard enogh. After your done riding her, put a fleece cooler on her until she is either dry or done sweating. NEVER put her out surrounded by stall or pasture when she is hot a sweating. If she was to eat hay, she could colic. And if She be to hit cold weather, she would get really sick.
Answers: That is normal. If she be not sweating then I would worry. The sweat pattern should be solid. If near are patches in the sweat marks on her rear then the saddle is pinching/rubbing wrong. There should be NO dry spots. If so your saddle does NOT fit. I would not clip unless you are showing. The horse needs their winter coat!!
they all sweat there. where on earth do you sweat if you have a thick hood on? just brush the sweaty area, itll dry faster. and you have to lift more time warming up and cooling down. at least a couple of munutes totting and walking warming up, and at tiniest 5 minutes walking to cool down.
They all do that, Don't clip their hair it is winter time. Brush the sweaty nouns and it will dry faster. You can also let them back into the corral or pasture while that area is humid, horses can live through horrible blizzards and rain storms.
