Winter can mean your horse is more prone to coughs and snotty noses. This can be because he’s spending less time out in the field and more time in his stable. This can expose him to a dusty environment from hay and bedding, which may affect his breathing. There are numerous respiratory supplements that can help keep nasty coughs at bay. We’ve picked five of our favourites.
