After a joint ride it goes without saying that the horse needs to be washed and groomed. Rider and horse enjoy such care to the fullest. Just having been curried, the horse is returned to the box.
As nice as a long ride across nearby meadows and along adjacent forest tracks is, it is also wonderful to caress and groom your horse. That is why true equestrians look forward to washing and feeding their horse as much as their horses get excited about the fond care of their owner.
