I just bought a cute little American Paint Pony. She is 11hh and 15 years old. Besides being a pasture pal for the past 5 years, she was shown in english and jumping prior to that by a little girl. She is my winter project and I'm hoping to have her somewhat back in shape by the spring.
She is slightly sway backed, nothing alarming. What I want to know is if there's a way to stop it from getting any worse. Are there certain exercises that will help strengthen her back and stomach muscles? I'm hoping that just exercise in general will fix it. She hasn't done ANYTHING in 5 years except eat!
