Have you ever ride a horse?

Citat

For sure, nrbrobylokalraad.dk isn't a perfect place to share my equestrian hobby, but I have to start somewhere, so I thought that "http://www.nrbrobylokalraad.dk/forum/forum/first-forum/" category will be ok.

Horse rugs are a confusing

Thing for several riders. Some riders do not feel the need to use them and
consider them an unnecessary accessory, though some cannot imagine functioning
without them. What's the truth? If you choose to use a carpet, which would be
suitable for your horse?

It's true that in their
Natural habitat, horses do just fine without such amenities as rugs. But,
we need to be aware that horses functioning in horse riding don't have the exact same functioning circumstances since the horses residing in their natural habitat. First
of all, horses training under the saddle are usually shaven, which impacts their natural protective coating against low temperatures. Most time when it's
cold outside, these horses spend indoors, where they are not subject to reduced temperatures. Even the matter of a different diet is crucial here. That is why
we cannot expect them to have the immunity that their free brothers have. While
altering the horses' habits and environment, we need to supply them with
protection against the negative ramifications of e.g. weather. For that very reason we
have various types of carpeting. Which kind would be useful to your horse and
if to use it? We will attempt to explain that.

In shops it is possible to encounter these types of rugs:

  1. Coaching -- this kind of carpet is put on along with a
    saddle. It'll be ideal for colder days. We should mention that
    training together should not be too exhausting, as your horse might
    have difficulty with losing heat excess from the body.
  2. Dry -- usually made from fleece another substance with moisture-absorbing properties. This sort of rugs is usually
    used after training in order to wash the horse. In shops, you can find them as
    fleece carpeting.
  3. Stable -- advocated for shaved horses. They
    should protect the horse from heating too far, but in the exact same time they
    do not block air flow, so the horse doesn't sweat. To be utilised in stalls. It will protect
    your horse against the wind and light rain. Made of materials easy to clean.
  4. Rain -- it safeguards your horse's coat from becoming wet during rain. Mostly they are made to be as waterproof as possible. Usually made from mesh material. This kind of a carpet is super useful in summer time, in which horses are especially subject to insects' bites of all
    kinds.
  5. Winter --
    rugs with cushioning. To be used on a paddock
    or in a non-heated secure. Usually it's possible to pick from a couple
    of thickness of cushioning for a single model.
  6. Transport -- to be used to safeguard the horse
    during transportation.

Another thing is to adjust the
Appropriate length. Namely, the way to choose appropriate size for your own horse. Particular manufacturers have various
size markers. You can find letter sizes (S, M, L etc.),
centimeters, or inches. There is a rule where for units of duration is the length
of the carpet on the horse's back. This value is essential for deciding on the proper size. Even in case you've got an S, M, or L size, it refers to the rug's span on the
horse's back. E.g. a well-known producer of equestrian equipment Eskadron claims S = 125 cm, M = 135 cm, L = 145 cm, etc.. Obviously, it's best when you can
take a look at a chart when all of the rug's measurements are cited. Then you
can make confident a given size will fit your horse properly.

As you can
See, by using proper rug you are able to assist your horse in dealing with unpleasant
Weather, insects, or shield him during transportation. Also, you shouldn't overdo
The whole rug thing. Should you use them if they Aren't needed, you can disturb
But You Have to remember
That without a rug when the weather is bad, you endanger your horse e.g. to a
Higher chance of catching a cold.
