Winter riding comes with a set of challenges. One of those is drying a sweaty horse in freezing temps to avoid catching a chill.
How to Dry a Sweaty Horse in the Cold
The typical routine to dry a sweaty horse in the winter can vary. However, it typically includes extended cool out time, towel drying, and using a cooler to wick away moisture. Consequently, this eats up a lot more time. So, what if there was a way to cut down this time? All while ensuring your horse is dry AND protected from bacteria and fungus? Well, there is. It’s called COAT DEFENSE® daily PREVENTATIVE POWDER.
How does COAT DEFENSE® daily PREVENTATIVE POWDER help dry a sweaty horse in the cold?
COAT DEFENSE® daily PREVENTATIVE POWDER is comprised of only five natural ingredients. Safe, moisture wicking, antibacterial and anti-fungal, they make for a perfect combo to help dry a sweaty horse in the cold. And there is no worry of removing the natural oils, or drying out skin. It is safe to use under a cooler to help dry even faster, while keeping the material clean and clear of bacteria or fungus. And another bonus? It’s handmade in the USA.
I absolutely love this product. I use it after riding to absorb sweat, in between baths, to treat and prevent sweet itch on my sensitive horses, in the winter as a bathing alternative, and as a daily preventative and to treat / prevent scratches on my feathered horses. You can use this product for both dogs and horses with ease. The light mint scent is pleasant. It is a staple in my training program and my Great Danes love it too ! I do not go anywhere without it and I always have my tack room stocked!

How do you use COAT DEFENSE® daily PREVENTATIVE POWDER to dry a sweaty horse in winter?
Simply sprinkle it on, and rub in with a brush or curry. Let it soak up the sweat, then brush off. That's it. Any COAT DEFENSE® that remains on the skin is safe and will help prevent any bacteria or fungus from thriving. Also, it can be used under coolers to keep them smelling great and dry your horse even faster.
Is COAT DEFENSE® daily PREVENTATIVE POWDER only for drying sweat only?
Nope. COAT DEFENSE® daily PREVENTATIVE POWDER can help almost every equine skin ailment. It works by creating a healing environment where your horse’s immune system can do what it does best. Fight and Heal.
By using COAT DEFENSE® daily PREVENTATIVE POWDER under horse blankets, sheets, coolers, saddle pads and work boots, you can prevent bacteria build up, keep them smelling fresh, and protect against chafing
