During the cold weather of the winter months, warmups are critical for ensuring that your horse's soft tissues remain injury free. Always warm up your horse's muscles slowly first with some non-strenuous warmup exercises and then perform some simple basic stretches before attempting intensive workouts or new unfamiliar movements with your horse. Your horse will enjoy the warming action provided by the exercises and you'll enjoy not having long winter layups and vet bills from injuries this winter.
