The Importance of Hydration


Dehydration should not just be associated with hot weather, as a horse can become dehydrated in cold weather when they tend to have less access to grass, eat more dry feeds in the form of forage and often do not like drinking water cold water as the temperatures drop.

However, it is the hot weather we are concerned about here as when the temperature rises water has an increased and very vital role in thermoregulation.  The greatest risk of dehydration is when it is hot and humid, a horse will need at least four times his usual water intake.

We asked Equine Management and Training to provide some guidance on keeping your horse hydrated. Please click here to read the full article
