Water is essential to life, and a horse that’s not drinking can become dangerously dehydrated in just a few days. Your horse’s health is important, and hydration is key—but horses are sometimes fussy about water. Certain situations can cause horses to stop drinking, quickly putting them at risk for dehydration and colic. This is especially true when they're on the road.
You want to keep your horse healthy when traveling and ensure she's drinking the minimum eight gallons of water a day. So how do you do that? We have some suggestions.
Horses don’t like change. A new smell or taste, even switching from a familiar metal water container at home to a plastic bucket on the road can be off-putting to a picky drinker. Here are a few reasons horses may stop drinking water when away from home.
You don’t have to be at the mercy of your horse’s picky water palate. There are ways to help your horse stay hydrated and save both of you some stress. Try these ideas to increase water consumption when hauling.
We realize a horse that’s not drinking is an immense concern. That’s why we created Redmond Rein Water. It’s an all-natural equine electrolyte drink mix that stirs easily into a water bucket and appeals to horses' taste for salt.
Rein Water is simple and natural. It includes Redmond salt, Redmond clay, and essential trace minerals and electrolytes horses need to stay hydrated. It also alkalizes and masks the taste of unfamiliar water, and horses love the flavor!
