    Not only cute, but that's pretty smart of her to do that.

    Depends on the type of horse, what work it does, and the ownership / trainer, etc. Show horses... every day using shampoos and skin conditioners. Working horses after a hard workout. Pleasure riding horses, as needed if very sweaty , horse crazy little girls... after every time they ride. Broodmares, maybe once a year or longer. They get a good shower standing in the pasture when it rains. Very similar to dogs.

    Personally I don't bathe mine a lot. They get the sweat hosed off after a good workout, which could be daily during the summer. But I only get them soapy and sudsy maybe twice during sweaty riding season. I may give a mane and tail shampoo more often, but a good thorough brushing and rinsing the sweat off with plain water keeps mine shiny.

    Pretty smart horse to stand in the sprinkler to cool down. Other horses may not be able to figure that out on their own.
