Of course, correct riding, that's a no brainer, however long trotting up steep hills is killer. Last weekend, I took my horse to a thermal imaging/massage clinic along with 10 other owners/horses. My horse had the best topline, most muscle compared to a few warmbloods & ranch horses. Everyone was asking me what I did with my horse being so early in the riding season (we still have snow on the ground here), my answer was ride all winter and walk down the 2 mile mountain road and long trot up it. Also my horse was the only horse there without major sore/hot spots, I attribute that to being fit and ridden regularly.
