What are some good ways to take care of your horse after a heavy workout? (Besides walking them out a ton and hosing them off in the summer/putting a cooler on the in the winter)

Grooming helps and actually spongeing helps especially if they are super hot hose and then scweegge then repeat. Make sure the chest cool before the horse is put away
I like walking them out but it's fun in the summer to go bareback and cool them out on the grass it's really nice
I use ice vibe to cool the tendon down and recover from the hard work. I also use Back on track wrap and blanket in the winter time to help for stiffness. In the summer I hose them down and graze them
I like to include some light easy lateral work to stretch out muscles
A good curry afterwards helps remove lactic acid build up in muscles
