Troppo. Loco. Round the twist.
This post is addressed to the selfish prat I encountered today. Evil or Very Mad

If you have a horse with a respiritory infection, that's coughing and snotting everywhere, not only shouldn't it be ridden but riding it in a shared indoor arena exposes other peoples horses to your horses illness. I don't care how special you think you are, you do not have the right to make other peoples horses sick. Be responsible and don't spread it around.

Thank-you. I feel better now. Smile

What a fool. Pity her horse too.

Hopefully it isn't paddocked with or near other 'inncoent' horses at an agistment centre somewhere?


There seems to be a few really virulent coughs and colds around this season.

I would have told the prat to take her farking horse out and get a vet to it regardless on how "Special" she is.


Would love to go on a world trip and not have a worry in the world.

Step away from the computer,
Confused I hope you know the difference: my horse always has a good cough/snort during warmup and I can assure you she is not ill. I have, however, had people expose my mare to their unwell horses at events and me bring her home sick Sad

The horse that Bunny B described had snot coming out of it's nose as well, that's the difference. We have an old stallion that does the cough and snort thingy when he goes around as well and he doesn't cough constantly, just the once or twice.

Definately a sick horse. It has been seen by a Vet and is on Antibiotics as it has a secondary bacterial infection. The owner intends to continue riding daily. I am reluctant to use the indoor now because I don't want sick horses Sad

Is this an agistment centre since you are sharing the indoor? Perhaps management could make them 'rest' their horse. They sound a right arsehole TBH.... Who wants to work when you are sick on antibiotics? Poor horse.

Not only poor horse, but very bad management........


It's a welfare issue...you dont train at the gym when you're sick on antibiotics cos it's dangerous......why would ou do it to a,horse,..

Crikey, that is entirely irresponsible. Is she planning on competing anywhere this weekend? Advise the MCP stewards.

So many risks working performance horses with respiratory infections. It can have pretty serious long term effects like raised cilia (little hairs in the throat) and ongoing lung problems. The immune system usually hits rock bottom too making the poor horse susceptible to all and everything.

I don't know your situation but if she is a paying user of the facility that you too pay to use then I would be fairly insistant that the owner of the facility places her horse on restrictions.

Interesting to note other posters mention their horses have a couple of coughs at the start of a work out. I have noticed mine do too but only when worked indoors. Usually they have a cough then a few snorts just as we start trotting...The indoor I use is spotless and is a course sort of sandy gravel - not dusty at all...

Wonder what causes it?

Maybe she doesn't know 'arena etiquette" and the risks associated with respiratory infections. It's generally not something genetically programmed into us.

Hopefully some nice responsible person will explain it to her.
