    Unsaddle him and walk him to cool him down. Do not let him drink a lot right away if the ride got him sweating from running fast. Cool him good before allowing him to drink a lot of water. Wipe him down, removing as much sweat as you can. Rub the drying cloth down his legs a few times. This helps to sooth his leg muscles. Then turn him to pasture to graze on grass, not chomp down tons of hay because this could cause colic..

    It's called rest therapy . You let him eat and drink-- then rest after a long ride.
