Okay some info about my baby: :)
He is a quarter horse, he is 14-17 yrs old, we are not sure.. he is a western and english horse, right now due to an injury or abnormality(whatever you want to call it) he is not in good shape. But after this week he will be back on a training plan that works with my school times.. most winters he gets into shape and I ride him on saturdays for about an hour to start off then once he is in shape he will get ridden anywhere from 2hrs-4hrs..on a trail ride.. we do mostly walking, some trotting,cantering,and galloping.. it all depends :)....he enjoys it and so do I.. he is not OVERWORKED!! He will hopefully be doing about 1-2 ft jumping courses next summer and everything on the flat from english and western pleasure to trail classes.. okay I hope this is enough info.. tell me what you would advise..thanks :) oh and he will have 24/7 pasture.. and in the afternoon he will get walked for about 15-30 minutes(if he is by my house)..thanks!!
