Padalino said it’s clear that exercised horses should be allowed to eat and drink immediately after cooling down in order to restore the lost water and energy. If that doesn’t fit your stable’s organization, she added, it's time for your organization to evolve.

“To improve welfare, we should try to adapt horse management to the horse’s behavioral needs and not to the humans’ needs,” she told The Horse.
