Protecting Your Horse in the Sun

When the sun comes out consider a mobile field shelter

Finally we are starting to move into the warmer months of the year and the sun slowly starts to show its face, now is the time to start thinking about how to help your horse stay happy in the sun. As rare as the sunshine can be in the UK, your horse can still get sunburnt, which if you've ever been sunburnt you'll know is no fun.

Having a shaded area for your horse to get out of the sun is essential. Our range of Mobile Field Shelters and Stables are a perfect shady haven for your four legged friends.Mobile Field Shelters come in various sizes and can be moved with a 4x4 as you rotate between fields throughout the year. This is a cost effective and versatile solution to giving your horse a cool shady space in the field.

Even with a Mobile Field Shelter your horse would rather be out where the grass is most of the time so it's important to keep him protected with alternative methods. Equine sun lotion is easily available nowadays and can be applied to areas with little hair i.e. ears, nose and heels, fly masks and rugs are also great for covering up whilst keeping cool.For more information on our ranges of Mobile Field Shelters and Stables please browse our website or contact the sunshine Sales Team on 01233 611123.
