Re: [RC] ginger for horses? - Barbara McCrary

I've heard of this for years.  Isn't it wonderful what people will do to their horses to make them look classy, spirited, etc.  Shave their ears, grease their faces, put ginger under their tails, jack up their feet, whip them into a frenzy before entering the ring.  BLAH!!!

OK, so I went to the opening day of the Scottsdale Arabian show today. It was late in the day and most of the activity was over but the shopping, I proceeded to the Schinders tent to do some exploring. Standing in the row of rub, lotions and lineament I saw a small jar and the cover said ?Ginger rub?. Knowing ginger is an amazing natural product I was curious to the use for it on horses, I picked it up and read ? Use for tail carriage ? apply to rectum ten minutes before show time! OMG!


I will never understand this world of horse showing and the poor unsuspecting horse with ginger on his a*^! I can?t even get a crupper under my guys tail, lol!


More stories to come for the world of over privileged riders and under privileged horsesJ
