Vinegar Application to help Cool Down Dressage/Jumping Horse

French translation


After hard hot summer work out, I hose my horse down, scrape him, and then apply a mixture of vinegar and linament.

It is said to help cool them down and rid the muscles of lactic acid. I don't know if it is true but it seems to help my dressage/jumping horse really well.

cooling leg spray NEW

After a long day's fox-hunting, a long and difficult trail ride or an intense schooling session, I always spray my horses's legs with this mixture: 1 part vinegar; one part methyl alcohol and one part water. I was told this by an old horseman years ago. It cools their lower legs down a treat.
