Make a point of feeding and exercising your horse at the same time each day. A routine will not only help prevent colic, but it'll make everything
more organised around the stable.
Feed Lots of Roughage Roughage ensures that your horse's digestive system works constantly, as it's supposed to. A lot of grain at one time will only cause upsets. Feed little and often for best results.
Keep Medical Treatments Regular Make sure your horse is wormed on time, every time. Drenching is also important, as well as other routine checkups, like dental check-ups.
