Beet pulp had practically NO sugar in it. It's the leftover fiber AFTER they extract the sugar so it shouldn't make her hot.

No the beetpulp in our feed shop sends them very fizzy my local livery yard only feed to some as it sends them crazy, she was on it before and was basically unrideable hence why i ended up with her!

I'm guessing that beet pulp found at your local feed store has molasses added. If my BO accidentally picks up a bag with added molasses, I just wash it down in a strainer before letting it soak.
And yeah, backing up a small hill, literally. =] It'll help a lot; it did for me. Take it slow and be patient at first, it might take a while for your horse to understand what you're asking.

Oh right, our feed store only carries plain beet pulp... I forget they sell the molasses kind. Ask the store if they can order you plain bp.

I usually did the backing about 3 times a week, backing up five times. So, generally I did Monday, Wednesday, Friday, so that my horse had a "break" between every time. It helps them develop a topline, and it's low-stress on both you and your horse's legs, unlike gallop conditioning.

Agree with hill backing and hacking. Thn when they are slightly in shape trot sets and gallop sets are what I do!
