Horses do not have cold-blooded fingers or ears, but we have to think about them so they do not fall ill when they come back from competitions. The very basic equipment is a fleece rug, or even two - when your horse sweats and the rug is soaked, you can change it for the dry one. For the worst weather I recomment rugs with hood and half-rugs useful during warm up. The rest of the horse's equipment is pretty much the same as it is for summer season. Remember that while putting the bridle on, the bit will be freeing cold. For a moment before starting dressing your horse up, you can put it into very warm water..
