Post your tips...

Some of mine prob have loads more

Have spare socks and clothing at the yard, and a towel for you if you get soaked. Dry foot ware also is handy.

Keep a torch at the yard and in the car.

Keep a charger for your mobile at the yard or have a car charger just in-case you ever get low batteries and need a vet.

Wet rugs dry easier on your horse, but if there damp inside air over something

Do as many jobs in the day light

7 Day mud away is brilliant!! or Robinson's do there own white label version. Put it on a Sunday.

this stuff:

The revolutionary winter grooming aid.

An innovative product that, when sprayed onto the horse or ponies coat inhibits mud from cementing onto the hairs of the coat for up to 7 days

A revolutionary way to spend more time riding than cleaning off muck and mud during winter months or wet and muddy conditions.

Simply spray onto the coat, mane and tail, prior to turnout, to prevent large clusters of mud adhering to the surface. For any mud that sticks one simple flick of the brush, and its all gone.

It is really good stuff Charlie, I use it on Humphy plus try Gold Label leg guard. That is good stuff aswell.

Another tip - if possible and you have the storage make up several breakfasts/dinners. Saves time and your not standing around in the cold. I usually do mine on a Sunday when I have more time.

Always keep some DERMAGEL in your first aid kit!!

It is FANTASTIC stuff, especially for the winter.....If your horsey comes in with a cut and you have a very muddy field or just dont want any shavings/straw getting into it this stuff is a must.

Its a clear gel that when set acts as a breathable plaster but is completely waterproof! BRILLIANT stuff, highly recommend this product Wink

Heres what to look for:

The nets used to clean out fish tanks are great for cleaning out drinkers/water troughs, and saves you getting your hands wet and cold.
