This is the time of year for horse lovers to get back in the saddle – for riding and romance. For equestrians, it’s time to brush up on the condition of their horses as they shed their winter coats in anticipation of a warmer summer – although some say in this country you can tell the season by the warmth of the rain.
This has been the coldest winter for a while, so give your horse or pony a good check over to make sure they are in tiptop condition. If injections are due, call in the vet and also get teeth checked out to sort out any wear and tear from chewing.
Tiptop doesn’t only mean checking from nose to tail, but the feet as well. Depending on where and how much riding is planned, hooves may need trimming and the feet shoeing.
Don’t expect your horse or pony to be ready for an arduous trek straight away – you probably need some exercise and warming up to tackle a long ride and so does your horse or pony after a winter of inactivity.
Watch the feed as well – don’t go straight from hay to grass, phase the change in to avoid upsetting digestion.
As for you, turning out a healthy and well-groomed horse is one thing; you also need to have a good look at yourself and your online dating profile.
With the hope of some great outdoor weather, you can plan some events and rides with romance in mind.
Check out your profile and spruce up the details – if you’ve had a birthday update your age and make sure your photo does you justice.
