Re: [RC] Sponging? Yes or NO? - Tiffany D'Virgilio

Also, how would you feel if you were working out that long and intensely with tack on? All that salt is an irritant to their skin. I figure if my horse has to carry me that far and in heat, the LEAST they deserve is me making every effort to make them comfortable. It cools them and keeps the gunk and salt off. Do your horse a favor and sponge away. A happy, comfortable, cool horse is a better ride as well.
