Okay so today when I was showing in barrels with my horses my mom was talking to my Best Friends mom and she asked if I would like to work/ride/exersize her horse (she can, got injured not saposta(?) ride any more) he's 18(?) year old hanovarian(?) about 16.3 I belive and all black and out of shape I agreed I've wanted to get back into english and this is my chance. So I was wondering any tips its been about a year to a year and a half sense my last english ride on another horse that they sold. I've ridding english for 8 years but not as much as western, so I just wanted some tips. She wants him to get a bigger butt and lose the belly. Also to get in shape. I would lunge (any advise for time for W/T/C) for the first week or two and before I ride.
Any tips. Advise? He's upper level dersage and from germany 10 years ago. Ill probely get out to their stable 3 to 5 times a week just depends on whats going on at my house with my 3 horses. And if I have school days off. Any good exersizes I can try with him?
