Sometimes a horse just knows.




Most people will now be aware there is a severe heat wave in parts of Canada and the USA. This is leading to deaths of people and will also seriously compromise the health and welfare of many horses.

Here are some simple measures that can make horses more comfortable and reduce the risk of heat-related illness and heat stroke.

1) Keep horses in the shade during the day
2) Use fans to create airflow
3) Spray them down with water frequently
4) Cool drinking water to below ~80°F as horses will consume less warm water. Also avoid making it too cold as this may also reduce water intake
5) Consider providing some additional salt in the diet if they sweating heavily
6) For horses that have developed heat stroke
-bring their temperature down quickly using as cool water as possible (as long as its ~50°F cooler than the horse (~100°F) then it will help
-call your vet
-keep them cool in the shade by keeping them wet and using fans

Since Atlanta 1996 we have known that using continuous application of cold water without scraping is the most effective way to cool down horses that are moderately to severely hyperthermic (re**al temperature in excess of ~40°C/104°F), especially in hot or hot/humid conditions.

The sources for this evidence are:

1) Williamson, L.S., White, S., Maykuth, P., Andrews, F., Sommerdahl, C. and Green, E. Comparison between two post exercise cooling methods. Equine Vet J., 27(S18), 337-340.

Cooling hot horses with cold water DOES NOT
1) cause muscle damage
2) cause laminitis
3) induce shock
4) give horses heart attacks
5) prevent them from cooling by constriction of skin blood flow

Water left on horses DOES NOT
1) insulate and prevent heat loss
2) cause them to overheat

1) start at the feet and work up
2) scrape water off whilst cooling (it causes them to warm up)
3) focus on large blood vessels
4) cover the horse with wet towels
