Horses swimming – cooling off in the river

We’ve had a great start to the season with some fantastic weather to boot – and there’s nothing we like more than a cool off in the river at the end of a long day trekking. We take our horses swimming often so they are used to the water, confident in the river and are usually as keen as the riders to cool off on a hot summer’s day.

Horses don’t look as though they would be natural swimmers – but in fact they can be as graceful in the water as on land.  Take a look at this video of horses swimming to appreciate just how versatile horses can be.  Enjoy!
