Smoke and horse health

BC's air pollution is often one of the worst in the world during our summer's due to the now regular megafires. When the air has lots of smoke

, we advise our clients to extend the same precautions to their horses that health advisories are giving to people. This means that when there is smoke in the air, riders should avoid putting their horse through strenuous activities during the mid-afternoon and early evening. If your horse is experiencing shortness of breath, coughing or wheezing, you should consult us.
