Horse Care & Management

Horse care & riding in winter

How does the course work?

What you will learn

Managing stables and keeping horses happy, healthy, and well-exercised can all be much more of a challenge in winter than during the warmer months. In this course you will find a lot of practical information about:

  • how to ensure your horse is comfortable in sub-zero temperatures;  
  • how to make surfaces safe for horses;
  • what a horse needs to stay warm;
  • the pros and cons of clipping and rugging; and
  • how to make winter riding safe and enjoyable.
