How to Wash a Horse

  • 1). Put your horse in a halter.

  • 2). Tie the lead rope to a railing near a water hose.

  • 3). Use a gentle spray of water. It's easiest to use a hose with an adjustable nozzle.

  • 4). Start at your horse's hooves and work your way up his legs.

  • 5). Wash his body from the belly up.

  • 6). Hold the lead rope and with a light mist gently wash off your horse's face. Most horses don't like this and may fuss.

  • 7). Hose your horse's neck, including under the mane, and continue down the neck to the tail.

  • 8). Pull the horse's tail away and wash underneath.

  • 9). Use a big, soft sponge and gentle shampoo if you want a more thorough wash. Do not put shampoo on the horse's face.
