This time of year it is a constant battle with the mud and our horses are at risk of getting mud fever. Mud fever is not a single disease but can come in different forms. The condition occurs especially in warm, wet weather, and is certainly not limited to horses that are paddling in knee-deep mud. Mud fever starts off with dry crusts, which are caused by the inflamed skin weeping. The condition can range from a mild skin irritation to very painful infected sores, and can in some cases cause significant swelling with severe lameness.

The sheer beauty of high performance is that it all looks so deceptively easy. But whether it is a grand prix level horse and rider executing the minutely accurate steps of canter pirouettes, passage, and piaffe in the dressage ring, or ballet dancers executing the complex flows of demi-pointe, frappe, or tendu on stage, both performers know the degree of sacrifice, dedication, pain, and setbacks it may take to get to that flawless peak.

No matter the season, any time wet conditions are present bacteria and fungus can get trapped in a horse’s hoof wall. Similar to human toenails, once fungus and bacteria have set in, they are very difficult to conquer. This combination of pathogens in the hoof wall is a recipe for White Line Disease.

When gearing up for endurance and trail riding season, there is a lot of training and preparation that go into it for the rider and horse. Both have to be conditioned to face the 25, 50, or 100-mile race that lies ahead of them. Because a horse will be on its feet in rocky terrain for long periods of time, it’s important that hooves are properly protected, supported, and prepared for any possibilities such as uneven, loose footing, stepping on sharps, cuts, and hoof impacts.

I’ve towed horses for many years with a two-horse bumper-pull trailer attached to the truck in the traditional way – with a ball mount hitch. Some riders towed larger gooseneck trailers hitched to a mechanism permanently welded into the middle of the truck box. I’ve always thought that type of hitch would be incredibly inconvenient whenever you wanted to use the truck for other purposes.
