Saddle pads, riding pants, helmets. Summer is heating up and everything is sweaty! Keep your horse cool with this Team Purina tip:

Monitor water intake

Adequate water intake is critical during hot weather. Most horses will readily drink plenty of water however poor water quality can severely limit intake. It is best to provide fresh cool/cold water on a daily basis (most horses don’t like to drink hot water). Keeping water troughs and buckets clean and free of algae will also encourage drinking. Care should be taken with troughs or buckets that are dark in color since they will absorb heat quickly if placed in the direct sunlight and will quickly heat up water, which may be unpalatable. It can also be harder to see accumulated algae and debris in the bottoms of dark colored troughs. (Tip: overfill water troughs to provide a mud bath for your horses. They will love to roll in it and it is also good conditioning for their hooves in dry climates.)
