Warm bits

If your tack room isn’t heated, place your bit in hot wa­ter to help warm it up be­fore you put your bri­dle on your horse.

Hand warmth

Buy hand and feet warm­ers in bulk, and leave them in your tack trunk so you have them ready to use on cold days.

Cool­ing down

Did your horse work up a sweat? Use a cooler that wicks mois­ture from him to help him stay warm while he dries off.

Cold feet

When you bring your horse in from out­side, make sure you check and clean his feet to get rid of packed snow or ice.
