Cool Horse StablesFunny stables
A lot of dressage shoes need help to cool down during the summers. The hot and humid climate, especially in combination with high levels of relative humidities, can keep a horse from removing the inner warmth from its own bodies during training. Thermal stresses are usually caused by overstraining, which leads to superheating and not to warming from the sun's radiation.
You can use a wide range of easy refrigeration options. Don't overlook the performance of your horse by intermittent measurement of your horse's health and cardiac frequency. When you have finished your training, decelerate your horse for 5-10 min on a stroll. Get out, take off the nut and move on so that the circulation rinses the metabolites and warmth out of its muscle.
If you bring your horse to a halt suddenly and completely after a modest to exhausting movement, the horse's circulation is pumped into the musculature. At the same time, it contributes to a relatively high degree of dehydrogenation and is counter-productive to refrigeration. Bath your heads, necks, shoulders and feet with plenty of cool running mud. Big veins in these areas rinse warmth to the top of the body, and repeatedly macerating makes evaporation chill.
Continue to be applied and scraped off until the horse's hide is cool to the touch. Allow to dry and dry. Don't be enticed to put your hand over your heads and necks and let them in place. Hand cloths act as insulators and thus limit refrigeration. Warmth usually emanates from the forehead to keep the mind colder than the body's internal nuclear temp; the rise in warmth to the mind adds to a person's overall center or mind tiredness.
Bath the skull, large cervical ( "neck veins" and "carotid arteries") and large vascular system of the leg to help the warmth move from the center of the organ. If the horse cools down too quickly, this can lead to chills or muscular spasms (tying-up, myositis). Icewater can be spread over the whole human organism in warm and moist climate zones without the danger of convulsion.
But icy waters in drier climate zones can cause large group of muscles to become problematic - narrowing veins away from the skin while holding back metabolites and warmth that have to be dissipated from the deep muscles. In addition to a bad recovery of the metabolism, the horse can also suffer from a "binding syndrome" with paining muscular cramps.
It is best to limit the use of cold rooms to areas before the ante. Monitors your horse's rectal and muscular temperatures as it cools. As soon as the rectum temperatures reach 101°C and/or the breast has a cool feeling, you can stop cool. Only small, regular beverages are offered for those trained in gallop or sprint.
On the other hand, a horse that works at a constant speed can have whatever he wants. Shading is important to enhance convenience and coolness. Ventilators are useful for the convectionally cooled - the warmth is extracted from the horse's skins by the flow of freshly heated exhaust gas. Regular, brief strolls help the muscle to extract warmth from the deep tissue.
Immediately call a vet if your horse does not cool down properly within 10-15 mins.
