Feed for an overweight horse??
So my mare is extremely out of shape and overweight after having two years off. I've started riding her lightly again, but am working up to being able to work harder. Im keeping her off the large pasture this summer, and plan on keeping her in a dirt pen most of the time, letting her out on grass (about 10 acres with 4 other horses) for maybe 4 hours a day. I plan on feeding her 3 flakes of good grass hay twice daily in her pen, and a grain mix in the morning. I don't know what kind of feed to buy for her though that is good for my fat horse? Does anyone have an recommendations? She will also be getting farriers choice with her grain and hoffmans mineral, and a salt lick. Does this sound like an ok plan for her? Do I need to feed more or less? I really just want to get her healthy again :/
