than a half mile at a time without allowing a breathing spell .

Proper grooming is necessary to make the horse attractive and to keep the best health and condition . Grooming cleans the hair , keeps the skin functioning more naturally , lessens skin diseases and parasites , and improves the condition and fitness of muscles .
Grooming should be rapid and thorough , but not so rough or severe as to cause irritation — either of the skin or the temper . Take special care to keep all parts of the body clean and free from any foulness .
Horses that are stabled should be groomed thoroughly at least once each day . Those that are worked or exercised should be groomed both before leaving the stable and immediately upon their return .
The recommended grooming procedure for heated , wet or sweating animals is as follows :
1 . Wipe off and put away equipment used as fast as possible .
2 . Remove excess perspiration with a sweat scraper and rub briskly with a grooming or drying cloth to dry partially the coat .
Blanket and walk the horse until cool . Give him a couple of swallows of water every few minutes while cooling out .
Idle horses that are on pasture do not need daily grooming , but an occasional brushing of their coats is desirable .
There is hardly any limit to the kinds and styles of grooming .
There is hardly any limit to the kinds and styles of grooming equipment . However articles listed here are as good as any and are adequate .
