Summer in the Carolinas mostly guarantees one thing: sweat. For any humans like myself with a, ahem, low center of gravity, that tends to mean chafing and wondering whether the cooler benefits of shorts are worth sharing your equestrian-pale-legs that highlight that recent cellulite. For the horses, recently it seems to mean girth sores.
Jack may be prone to these already, being the very thin skinned creature he is, but they have definitely increased with the humidity and mercury.
I’ve moved him into a fleece girth, and hope that will make the difference. TC is in his shoulder relief girth and I may have to find a similar solution for this.
Does anyone have suggestions for girths or ointments that could help both boys not feel the chafe?
