I have an overweight horse. I got him about 5 months ago, and that is how I got him. He is an easy keeper, because he is old. He gets fat off of anything. He doesn't get any grain. We don't ride him a lot because he is old, and the people we got him from let him sit in the pasture for 6 years.
So right now we are only doing ground work with a short ride mixed in every now and then.
Running only helps a little bit.(like I said he would get fat off of a blade of grass).
Do you think teaching him how to jump and doing jumping while leading him, would make him loose weight. Or at least help.
Could you also give me other ideas, besides penning him up.
