I tried a product we had originally purchased for my previous competition partner, who was sometimes a bit finicky about water on the road - "Equitea". It's basically electrolytes in a slightly sweet base - the idea is that the horse gets used to the taste of it at home, and therefore has no problems drinking it on the road. I tried it with Dylan as he was doing a lot of sweating, and not a lot of drinking or salt-licking. He absolutely loves it. LOVES it. Like...pushing me out of the way while I'm mixing it to get at it. And...drum roll...today he drank a lot more "regular" water, too - yahoo! The things we celebrate as horse owners! He pooped and drank lots of water, I'm a happy horse mom :)
What do you all do with your horses in hot weather?? I'd love tips & ideas!!
