Hi, I'm new here and am planning to bring my horse home next month from the stable he's currently boarded at. It's about 16km's and we plan to start out early in the morning when it's cool (I'll probably walk next to him the first 8km's and ride the other 8km's). My horse has had the last year off and we have just started getting back into a workout routine.
Any advice for a long journey like this for a big Hanoverian that is not used to a long road hack? We are planning to stop half way and give him a rest/drink of water.... should I offer him any food as well? Should I let him drink freely or restricted? Thoughts? We figure it should take us 5 hours at the most?
