Shearing sports horses

As we all know heavy sweating can disturb the horses body mineral balance. Therefore sports horses that sweat a lot during the winter season have to be sheared.
All of our training and tournament horses who work on a daily basis are sheared. Since short furs supports the heat dissipation during training sessions and speeds up the recovery. Because of that the horses don’t sweat that fast and can stay motivated in training.
After the shearing the horses are washed thoroughly with warm water and covered afterwards.
Our young horses and retirees won’t be sheared and are keeping their winter fur.
