Horse sweating to remove the warmth from working muscle. A hardworking horse sweats even in cold conditions because this temperature comes from within.
Indeed, a horse working at high speeds in cold conditions can be sweaty. This is no obstacle in hot climates. Radiators keep the horse hot and conduct humidity away from the horse's body and to the ceiling inwards. These can help to keep the horse's muscle soft and firm between warm-up and competitive age.
In hot climates, you need a light radiator that transports perspiration away quickly, is quick to cure and remains in place - that's exactly what the Weatherbeeta Wick-Dri Radiator does.

Raine-impregnated animals can profit from a radiator that protects them until they are dried and accelerates the proces.

It is reminiscent of the time when the trainer was insisting on dual coolers on all our ponies, so that the humidity got away from the horse and into the upper chill. Several coaches used a ply of hay under the radiator to keep the bad humidity away from the horse. However, we think that the main drawback of yarn is that it cannot be washed in running soak.

Polarfleece does not take humidity well either, but it lets humidity through, making it a good cooling warp.
A disadvantage of non-woven fabrics that you will see on very arid, chilly weather is the fact that they have electric power.
