Winter Management Tips: Part 2

Winter Management Tips: Part 2

WINTER MANAGEMENT TIPS: PART 2




Continuing from part 1 winter management tips, we explore tips on clipping, nutrition, mud fever & hoof care and keeping yourself warm and dry.


Clipping

If your horse is clipped, ensure it is an appropriate clip for the amount of work the horse is in.

For example, if the horse has a full winter season of competition or hunting scheduled; a full clip would be highly suitable. Likewise, if you are only hacking your horse out once a week with no additional work, a bib clip or no clip may be more suitable.


Adjust Your Horses Nutrition As Required

If your horse is prone to dropping weight in the winter, consult your feed specialist or vet for nutritional advice and keep a close eye on the visual condition of your horse between rug swaps. Ensure that your horse has enough forage, whether in the stable or field.

For easy feed making, we offer a durable scoop made to easily plough through your feed, to scoop up and distribute with no spillage.

Mud Fever Prevention & Hoof Care

Mud fever can be difficult to manage and unpleasant for your horse, so the best course of action is prevention.

-Turnout mud fever boots are a great way to protect legs from dust and dirt coming into contact with the skin, keeping legs dry with less chance of mud fever developing. When bringing in from the field, remove turnout boots and let any mud on the unprotected areas dry before brushing off. Place the turnout boots on a suitable area and wash off with a hose and place somewhere to dry naturally i.e. a washing line.

It can be handy to have two sets of turnout boots, so that one can be used while the other set is drying.

-If turnout boots are not worn, pig oil and sulphur are popular choices to apply to the leg before turn out, to prevent the mud from sticking to the leg.

-If turnout boots are not worn, allow any mud on the legs to dry before removing with a brush. Hosing off with cold water may cause the skin to crack, while hosing off with warm water may open the pores to bacteria. If you do wash legs off, make sure they are fully dried off.

-If mud fever has already occurred, try to keep the affected area dry and clean. There are also many mud fever lotions and scrubs suitable for preventing and treating mud fever.

-Ensure you pick your horse’s feet out regularly, and before exercise to remove dirt and stones. Picking feet out regularly will prevent thrush from being stables for longer periods of time and being out in wetter conditions.

Tips For Keeping Humans Warm & Dry

We focus a lot on keeping our horses comfortable and warm and often dash out of the house underprepared ourselves, coming home freezing and wet.

-Layer up- As with a rugging system, you can add or remove layers as you increase or decrease your level of activity or changes in weather.

-Wear suitable thermal socks. There is nothing worse than dismounting your horse to find that your toes have numbed during your ride, or taking 20 minutes to de-frost your feet in the shower when you return home.

-Invest in some waterproof riding/ yard gloves. Cracked hands are not comfortable and can leave you open to infection.

-Invest/ wear a reliable and waterproof set of yard boots or wellies when in the field/ completing yard tasks. Wet feet are not only uncomfortable but can cause skin maceration which can damage the skin.

Have a browse of our waterproof riding gloves here:https://www.premierequine.co.uk/equestrian-clothing-accessories-c102x3071764the Hambleden Horse Riding Gloves even have touch-screen capabilities.




Winter is not the easiest time of year for horse owners, but with strategic management it is certainly more manageable.

Winter Management Tips: Part 1

Winter Management Tips: Part 1

WINTER MANAGEMENT TIPS: PART 1



The clocks have gone back, the evenings are darker and the air is cooler- that can only mean one thing, winter is upon us.

This brings a whole host of management difficulties from fitting in riding in the daylight hours to preventing winter ailments to keeping your horse and yourself warm. We’ve put together our winter tips for maintaining fitness and health during the colder months.


Prepare In Advance

If you have the ability to, make multiple haynets at a time when you have 20 minutes. This will mean you can simply put them where you need them which will save you time during mornings and evenings.

 
15 Minutes Is Better Than Nothing

If the dark nights and miserable weather makes you lack motivation to ride on weekdays, this can have a detrimental impact on your horses fitness plan. Where possible, aim for a minimum of 15 minutes of exercising per your fitness plan days, whether that is schooling, lunging or hacking. After warming up, 15 minutes of exercise per session will keep you on track so that your fitness regime is not compromised, while making the thought of exercising less daunting.

 
Hack On A Weekend

The weekend often offers the opportunity for longer rides, take the opportunity to ride longer and maybe even explore a new hacking route. Your horse may spend a longer amount of time in the stable in winter, give them new surroundings to look at to keep riding fun and to shake up your exercise routine.


Monitor Water Consumption & Warning Signs Of Colic

During the colder months, longer periods of stabling can lead to a higher risk of colic. Try and fill your water buckets right to the top so that you can monitor exactly how much your horse is drinking, it can be handy to have a water bucket with measurement markers on them.

 

We offer a highly durable option that does not go brittle over time and has a handy graduated measure on the inside surface for close water consumption monitoring.

 

https://www.premierequine.co.uk/horse-water-bucket-c2x25410440




With the grass becoming sparse, when turned out the horses can graze right down to the soil which can lead to a higher risk of sand colic. To avoid this, put plenty of hay in the paddocks where your horse will be turned out.


Adjust Rugging As Required

Frequently check how warm your horse is, considering the following:

-          Are they turned out or stabled right now?

-          Are they clipped?

-          Are they naturally hot or do they feel the cold?

-          Make sure you are not rugging as per how cold you feel, rather than your horse.

A rugging system can be extremely helpful, allowing you to add or remove liners as required to create different weights of rug.

Our bestselling rugging system is the Titan Trio complete 4 in 1 rug: https://www.premierequine.co.uk/titan-trio-complete-4-in-1-turnout-rug-c2x21443659 


Whether you have an intense competition schedule this winter, or your horses are having a break; we hope our top tips may help you manage your routine well and enjoy the colder months, the flies will be back before you know it!

Inhand Reserve and Inhand Veteran Champion went to Di Drysdale with Enigmatic Corner and second Reserve went to Paige Aitken and Categorical.


Katrina Byrne says "We are delighted to have such strong support from our members and friends for these championships and we are privileged to have great sponsors. Special thanks go to Championship sponsors Mark Usher Racing,Veteran championship and jacket sponsors Handley-Wright ExRacing and Champion rug sponsors PremierEquine"

CELLULAR ZONE

CELLULAR ZONE CELLULAR ZONE; MULTI-FILL TECHNOLOGY

With winter looming I thought it was time to purchase my 25 year old Irish sports horse gelding a new turnout rug. After years of living out all winter with minimal layers I have noticed he has started struggling to regulate his body temperature like he used to and he is also starting to lose some weight and condition. With this slightly concerning me I wanted to find a rug that can help to keep him happy, warm and safe. While browsing the internet I came across the Premier Equine Cellular Zone 250g Turnout Rug. I was very intrigued to read further as I had never seen or heard of a rug like this before...

I have been searching for a good, sturdy pair of boots suitable for all-day wear on my yard for what feels like forever. One of my liveries came to the yard last week with a brand new pair of riding boots and I happened to notice how very smart they were. When she told me that they were from Premier Equine I went online to browse their range. I was pleasantly surprised by how much choice there was; long leather riding boots and jodhpur boots in a variety of colours and styles.

As the days and nights gradually grow colder you may want to think about adding layers to keep yourself warm whilst riding or doing daily yard duties.

Warm air gets trapped between the layers and acts as an insulator, helping to keep you warmer than if you were wearing one thick layer. With that in mind, we offer three technically advanced tops for you to layer up with…

BRUSHING BOOTS

BRUSHING BOOTS BRUSHING BOOTS - SAFETY WHEN SCHOOLING

‘Brushing’ is a problem that is often related to a horses confirmation. Horses with narrow chests or lower leg defects are more likely to experience brushing. The lower leg and hoof swings sideways during exercise and catches the opposite leg, usually near the fetlock area. This can result in cuts, loss of hair, lameness, bone damage and pulled shoes. Brushing can occur on both the front and hind legs and is usually most obvious when a horse is trotting. Brushing problems may be improved by corrective farriery and by wearing brushing boots. Premier Equine provides a range of high quality and durable brushing boots which help to reduce the risk of trauma and injuries caused by brushing…

AIRFLOW COOLER

AIRFLOW COOLER LATEST INNOVATION IN COOLING TECHNOLOGY

I’d recently been browsing through the latest Premier Equine catalogue for a cooler rug for my 5-year-old bay gelding, Oliver. The choice was very substantial: traditional Buster Fleece Coolers, hi-tech Premtex Coolers and stylish Waffle Coolers, but a new addition to the catalogue this season caught my eye, the Airflow Cooler. The image looked stunning and the detailed information about the product confirmed my decision. I used my phone to find it on the P.E. website. It couldn’t have been easier, a few clicks later it was in my basket ready to dispatch. To my surprise and delight the package arrived just four days later, nicely in time for our outing to Rockingham Horse Trials . . . > Read More

FLY RUGS

FLY RUGS DON'T LET FLIES AFFECT YOUR HORSE'S MOOD

As
the good weather arrives choosing the correct rug for your horse can be a difficult one. Throughout the summer months annoying flies, midges and bugs can make your horse irritable and miserable. A horse that has been stood in the field being bothered with flies is often not focused on the job when ridden. In severe cases horses can be put off from grazing due to irritations caused by these pesky critters and some have even been known to colic through stress.


One thing is for certain; you can protect you horse from flies this summer. Premier Equine has a fantastic range of fly rugs, masks and horse boots offering varying degrees of protection for your horse.
Here are a few customers’ testaments that might help when making your decision

Asking about the effectiveness of the therapeutic technology one customer asked, "Is it just a lot of hocus-pocus Chinese witchcraft?” Well, Mrs Smith, (not her real name) I can say from experience that the technology employed in these products really does work. . . . > Read More
