Is your horse not clipped or is it just sweating a lot at work? Then you should use a suitable sweat blanket so that your horse does not catch a cold in the cold weather. Basically, you should definitely ride sufficiently dry. You can already use a kidney blanket or a sweat blanket, which transport moisture away and warm at the same time.
Sweat and kidney blankets are usually made of fleece material. You can also get them made of cotton, dralon, nylon or microfiber. The material transports moisture from the inside to the outside and dries the fur. You can observe this on very cold days with very sweaty horses in the hall: the moisture settles like hoarfrost on the top of the blanket while the fur underneath dries.
There are also sweat blankets with a fur edge to protect the withers of sensitive horses from chafing. They are also particularly stylish and also very popular as tournament blankets. Also make sure that your sweat rug fits well. Most sweat rugs for horses have a tail cord and cross surcingles for this. The waist belts are often removable and can be individually adjusted. This way the sweat blankets cannot slip.
