Leaving your horse unclipped allows him the full warmth and protection of his winter coat and eliminates most blanketing chores for you. However, if you do choose to leave your horse unclipped, be prepared to dry him properly once he’s worked up a sweat under tack.
If his coat is really drenched, you may need to change these rugs as they become saturated. Once he is dry, remove the wet rugs. You wouldn’t spend hours in a wet towel after your shower, would you?
Winter riding doesn’t have to be a chore, and with these options, the right hairdo for your horse is in your reach.
