Clean feet and legs

“If I only had 30 min­utes to get a muddy horse com­pe­ti­tion-ready, I’d use a time-sav­ing, step-by-step process,” says Jess. “First, if your horse’s feet and legs are muddy, hose them and pick out his feet. Depend­ing on how muddy they are and the tem­per­a­ture on the day, I’d boil a ket­tle so I can give them a warm, soapy rub down too. Ul­ti­mately, it’s quicker and eas­ier to wash muddy legs than try to brush the mud off. “Al­ways dry legs really well to pre­vent mud fever and other skin con­di­tions and ap­ply tal­cum pow­der to white legs. This helps to dry them, as well as mak­ing them whiter.”
