Keeping the horse's environment clean and safe is an integral part
of horse care. Many people do not enjoy the job of mucking stalls, however, it is just as important as keeping the horse
Before beginning to work with our
horse, be sure to muck his stall. If someone has already cleaned his stall, please select another horse's stall,
and clean it. Please allow time in your day to do this, for this is an absolute requirement!
When mucking stalls, please use a manure rake or flat shovel to pick up manure. After
the manure has been removed, sweep out the stall with a broom to ensure the removal of any small peices of manure left behind
or leftover feed. Place the manure in a wheelbarrow, and dump it on the manure pile. All manure is to be dumped here
and nowhere else.
After cleaning the stall, wash
the feed bucket. A clean feed bucket is also vital to a horse's health.
If you have been working with a horse in the Indoor Training arena and he has defecated, please be
sure to clean that up as well.
