Yeah, she went from being ridden regularly to being ridden just 4-5 times the past two summers. So, I'll be working off that belly by starting her out with some walking, slow gaiting for a bit then moving on to some cantering once she's lost a bit of weight and built up some more muscle. She's a really nice ride, smooth as butter - a nice easy slow gait plus she can kick it up to a pretty good clip if you ask her to. I got to ride her for a 2.5hr trail ride as a test ride, so I got a pretty good feel for how she handles just about everything!
Thinking of trimming her mane down, to get the reddish ends off of it. Will see if it grows in nice and dark again. Might start her on some black oil sunflower seeds or paprika in her grain to see if that helps her keep her dark coat.
