Re: [RC] Sponging on the fly - Linda Courts

Instead of using a sponge, I carry a small light weight plastic bucket(the kind vitamins or electrolytes come in) with a long bale made from sash cord.  This is very easy to use and you can get a lot more water on the horse in a hurry.  Just drag the pail through the water as you go through, you never have to stop and you have a whole bucket of water to dump on the horse.  The sash cord can be attached to each side by punching holes in the plastic bucket and making a knot on the ends of the cord too big to slip through the holes.  The cord can be laced back and forth through itself in small coils very quickly.  This attaches to the saddle just as easily as a sponge with a small snap.
