Im new, im not sure were to post this so ill give it a go..
I have a mare who is very horonmnal currently and has been for few months, I have owned for 6months and in this time, she has filled out alot. I ride basially daily and over the last month she has got fat and struggling with breathing. My instructor gives m Sh!t that she's not fit enough and so on.. and im now torn. As more I ride her the more she struggles.
She is very grumpy when I touch around her stomach back, she hasnt grown around girth area but drops away behind it... im unsure weather its just a grass belly or maybe infoal? What do you think? If looking infoal how far on would you say.. worth getting a vet out?
