You can increase her water intake before you go on rides by adding well-hydrated beet pulp. It is an excellent source of fiber & increases the amount of water in the gut because of its water-holding capability. It comes as shreds with or without molasses & is added to her regular ration. I feed it year round because of limited pasture & add additional water in the cold months when they are less likely to drink.
