    How does she look?

    This mare needs muscle tone, she is 8 years old and not broke to ride. I just started on training her and looking for advice on the best way to achieve a good muscle tone while riding, and some lunge work. Any advice and help would be appreciated.

    I know all people/horses are different but I have always had great success with a LOT of trotting, especially on the lunge. For a greenie I would make your circle as BIG as possible and if you are in an arena let her go all the way up the sides so she can go straight as often as possible. This will make you walk a lot but will be well worth it.

    I think she's a real cutie. What breed is she, that may help us all if we knew? I'm guessing QH

    Yea she is Quarter Horse. She is a N/N Impressive mare. If anyone is interested follow link below to see her pedigree. If I remember right she has 3 crosses to Impressive. Lady Steels Quarter Horse

    She is not new to a lunge line, but I do need to work her back into it. She has raised 3 foals for me in the past 5 years I have owned her. Thanks.

    I like her. She has good overall conformation from what I can see of those pictures, she just needs muscle and training. Trotting up hills is great for building muscle. Good luck with her!
