Battling Summer Dust: My Secret Weapon

Thank you Rohto Dry-Aid for sponsoring this post.

I spend a lot of time in the saddle these days. California summers are extremely dry and dusty.  I never realized how bad the dust was until Fira and I started going out for more trail rides together. We just celebrated our one-year anniversary last month so I can’t claim to be a newbie horse owner to SoCal anymore but that won’t stop me from complaining about the dust and dirt. Some days I feel like I’m out riding in the desert.

I recently started experiencing irritation from Dry Eye during and after our long rides. I’ve never had any eye issues before, so I thought my dry eye was just an annoying, painful phase at first. It was my husband who suggested I try putting in some eye drops after a ride to give me some relief.  There is nothing worse than coming up behind a group of trail horses and being surrounded by a cloud of dust, feeling like you can’t shake off that grit . Dry eye makes me feel like my vision is limited and that I’m in restricted in my eye’s range of motion. grooming tote and riding suppliesThankfully it’s been Rohto Dry-Aid to the rescue! They are the right eye drops for me – a must have essential to keep in the barn before I saddle up.

Having sensitive eyes isn’t something I let slow me down, but I’m proactive about taking care of my one pair of eyes and putting my health first. I never take any eye issues lightly and always do my best to take care of them. Fira and I have so many trails that we haven’t even explored and I can’t wait to see what adventures we go on this year. Riding to the Hollywood sign and Observatory are both a part of my summer goals!
