I always wash my horse’s legs (not always with soap, sometimes I just rinse his legs with water) after we go for a ride for general cleanliness and to avoid fungus. I ride pretty often, probably around four times a week, so I wash my horse’s legs often. I went to tractor supply the other day after my friend suggested I use orvus on my horse’s legs as she also does. I grabbed a tub of it but wondered if it was really safe to use on a regular basis. The tub said, “for industrial use only” so I was a little skeptical. I have a chestnut-solid paint warmblood who has very high white stockings that get manure stains easily. I’m worried that using orvus often would cause dryness and irritation. Any thoughts?
Edit: I don’t normally bathe my horse’s legs daily. Probably only around 2-3 times a week.
