Water is vital to the equine digestive system. Without adequate amounts of water, horses can’t digest and pass the roughage they eat. They also suffer dramatically from dehydration when working hard in the heat. Without water, horses die quickly.

Horses drink from ten to thirty gallons of water a day, depending on how hard they work, what they are eating and the temperature of the air and the water.
