Shave your horse's coat

Your horse will get its winter coat in the fall. Nature has come up with that well. The coat of your horse provides good protection against the cold in the winter.

If you train a lot, especially when you train in an inner box, your horse will soon start to sweat at moments of effort. This sweat then dries fairly slowly due to the longer hairs of the winter fur. Your horse is therefore more sensitive to draft and cold in this situation. In this situation you can consider shaving your horse.

You may also find your horse shaved more beautiful. A shaved horse is more hygienic anyway because less dust, dirt and sweat remains in the fur. It is also user-friendly: you need to brush your horse less extensively.

All reasons why you could make the choice to shave your horse. There are, however, a number of things to look out for.

Safe shaving equipment

Make sure you start the shaving job well prepared. Take plenty of time for it and do it with someone who has done it before when it is your first time. You will also benefit from the book "Shaving without damage" which you will also find in our webshop.

A second must is a perfectly working shaver with sharpened blades. You will find various shavers in our webshop. They have a long cord or are fitted with a battery so that you can shave cordlessly. Are the blades of your shaver in need of replacement or would you like a second set? You can also find these in our assortment.

It is important to thoroughly clean the shaving head (s) after every shave. Especially if you shave several horses one after the other. With a good shaving oil you maintain the razors well and ensure a longer life.

Measures after the shave

After your horse is shaved, it needs one or more rugs to keep itself warm. In our range you will find the optimal protection for your horse that protects it against all weather conditions, for example with one of our winter rugs or sweat rugs.
