Exercising Your Horse During Winter

winterize-your-horsePrevent the winter slump! Tips to exercise your horse(s) during the winter.

  • Lunge the horse once or twice a week. This not only gets the horse exercising, but it gives you an opportunity to brush, clean feet, check for injury, and evaluate the overall condition of the horse.
  • If you have more than one horse, you can ride one and pony the second. This can be a good time saver and gets both horses working.
  • If weather permits, ride your horse whenever possible.
  • Check with local stables to see if their facilities are available to non-boarders. Often, stables allow outside horses and riders to use indoor and/or outdoor arenas for a fee.
