5 Simple Reasons to Pick a Hot Water Horse Shower
1. Pleasant Experience
Your horse will never have to experience a cold bath again! Just think of this. All those times you cringed as your horse cringed while you were giving it a bath with cold water. Yikes! If you do not like taking cold baths or showers, just think about what your horse thinks. A portable hot shower allows you to give your horse a long luxurious cleaning all year long.
2. Keeping Warm
Along those lines, using a hot horse shower will keep your horse warm when the weather is cold, reducing the possibility of your equine becoming chilled. No more giving your horse a bath with cool or cold water, drying it off with towels or even using a hair dryer, then putting on wool coolers until they are dry. What an uncomfortable experience for your horse to endure.
3. Portability & Mobility
With a portable horse shower, you can bring it with you just about anywhere, especially when you do not have access to warm or hot water. These showers are durable and safe to use, providing you and your horse with an endless supply of warm/hot water in the barn, at a show site, while camping – just about anywhere.
4. Relaxes Sore Muscles
Using a shower will definitely relax your horse’s sore muscles. Just think how grateful they will feel after a rigorous workout, a long day on the trail or the hunt field, or after a day of showing. There is nothing like a warm shower to loosen muscles and relax the body.
5. A Horse That is Sparkling Clean
And, you can keep your horse sparkling clean every single day and not just for horse shows! Dust, dirt, mud, manure, and sweat are all things of the past now that a daily shower with warm water is part of your regular routine. Many hot horse showers are easy to hook up. Typically all you need is a garden hose to connect to a water supply and a power source. Hot horse showers run off of electricity, battery power, or gas such as propane.
Horse owners who have purchased these showers are quite glad that they have added this product to their grooming toolkit and wished that they had done it sooner. Clean happy horse equals happy rider, happy owner!

Now, I don’t know about you, but when I’m outside in the winter doing the horses, the last thing that I want is a glass of cold water with ice cubes! So, why should I give that to my horses? Not to mention drinking icy water can cause colic which can be deadly.
