    I'll see about altering the feed :)

    Definitely find out what the other person is giving. And probably stop it. You might need to give something to feed her supplements and ration balancers, but there are plenty of low calorie feeds to do that.

    So you are the only person working her 3 times a week? Keep doing what you do, when you feel like it, up the work a little. Start by trotting more, cantering a bit more (work over 1 h), then increase the canter work, more poles etc.
    Do what you feel comfortable with when it feels like it. You can usually tell when the horse is ready for more work, sweats less after the session or just still feels energetic.
    Yesterday I rode with my friend and she was very energetic but breathing hard and sweating after a very short trot. Infact, energetic is a bit of an understatement, she took off at a gallop at the second trot and I had to turn a circle to stop her... So she shows signs of being worked really hard even though we haven't and still feels energetic, any ideas?
