Cleaning Solutions for Horse Owners
Keeping your horse and its living area clean are important steps toward keeping your horse healthy. From grooming your horse to keeping its stable clean, here are a few cleaning tips to keep in mind as a responsible horse owner.
Scrubbing Water Buckets
In addition to giving your horse fresh water every day, you need to also be sure to keep its water buckets clean. Regular scrubbing of the buckets will help to prevent bacteria from forming. Warm water and a hard brush will help with cleaning. White vinegar can also be used to help remove stains.
After doing your routine cleaning of your horse’s stall, you should also finish off your routine cleaning chores by sweeping the stable entrance, feed room, store room and any walkways.
You should also routinely clean your horse’s tack in order to keep it in good shape. To do this, wipe down leather items with a clean, damp cloth and then add leather conditioner and polish if needed.
Of course, you can’t forget about the actual horse! Every day, you should give your horse a good grooming in order to remove mud and dust. You should also pick your horse’s feet and give it a quick brush down before taking it out on a ride, as this will help to stop dirt and mud from rubbing against its skin as you ride.
