Okay, so I have seen neck sweating do wonders for a horse, but what is actually doing to them? Sweats out excess water in that area, but anything else? Does it help burn fat? Can it lead to dehydration? I've been curious about this for a bit.
Have you tried it to know? I tried it as an experiment summer before last--and because I wanted to be sure that I wasn't doing anything to my beloved mare that would cause her any harm. I used fleece lined wraps identical to the one I put on my mare. We both had them on every night for a month. By show time she looked great and my waist was 1.25" slimmer. I don't think it stays that way or anything so I am not gushing on about miracles...but it did work. I also made sure to drink a LOT of water. I was ground driving this girl a lot while training her to cart, so exercise was a good bit of mine I am sure. Hmmm...might should try that sometime over the winter without the extra exercise to see if the results are the same.
