This page presents an overview of our plan for product development in this area.
Although many competitive riders leave the care of their horses to their trainers, every equestrian should know how to take good care of their horses. That’s because it can help you:
- Become smarter about the care of your horse(s) and spot injuries and illnesses even if your trainer misses them
- Make sure your horse is being cared for properly and given the best possible opportunity to succeed in the show ring
- Have a better appreciation for what your instructor or trainer is doing (and dealing with) in terms of keeping your horse in top condition
- Make better decisions when your trainer presents you with problems and suggests alternative courses of action
The fact is, you’re ultimately responsible for your horse’s care and will have to make the biggest health-care decisions, even if you rely on your trainer to provide good advice. So, in the end, this kind of knowledge is absolutely essential for any horse owner.
