Lightbulb Muscular horse - how to achieve it

I know a lot of people don't like overly muscular halter horses. But if you don't like the subject of this topic, please, just pass by and don't lose your time by telling how much you don't like the idea, etc.

This is in no way any kind of "trolling" topic and everything is meant seriously.

Let's keep this as a safe place for those who love very beefy horses and want to have them.

__________________________________________________ ____________

Hello, I'm planning to buy a horse but because of my very specific goal, I need some advices from experienced breeders.
I'm determined to achieve my horse looking in the same way as horses in these photos:







This is the look I've fallen love into. It's somehow an embodiment of equine strength and beauty.

What I'm going for is this extremely muscular look and other things are not of much importance to me. In other words, I would rather sacrifice possibility to ride the horse or have a horse that is not "so beautiful" (according to other norms) than not to have him/her with all those beautiful muscles.

I think I should buy haler horse, but if you know about other breed that would be easier to achieve such results, tell me. I'm not planning the horse to do any work and I'm not really interested in competitions. The horse will have beautiful, peaceful life with no stresses, with all possible love and care. Any special needs resulting from this unique body conformation will be more than fully compensated.

But let's focus on building this bodybuilder-like muscles in a horse:
How should I exercise the horse, what workouts? What food and what food supplements? Medication? Other things?

I'm ready to do virtually anything for the "double-muscled" look. I am willing to consider ANY method to achieve it.


PS: I'm sorry for my bad english, it's not my first language.

It's mostly breeding. Impressive, Kid whats his face. You can get a horse fit, but they won't look *cringes* like that.

You'll need to buy a horse specifically bred to look like that. You can't achieve that look by exercise.

Good luck with keeping one healthy though, since those horses tend to have horrible, painful, short lives because of their genetic abnormalities.

*cough* Sorry but all those horses you posted have HYPP. As far as I know there is NO WAY to get that look that extremely muscular without it, and personally, it's not worth a horrible genetic disease to have this "look"

Horse that are built like the above, literally cannot do anything besides "look pretty."

Yikes, that's so gross looking. I would think that you'd be risking a horses health by working them to the point that their muscles look that unnatural.

Those horses are specifically bred to look like that. There's no exercise that will give any other horse those types of muscles.

I know that...if you read the OPs post, they are asking how to achieve that 'look' of the pictured horses.

Much like people who are body builders and "overmuscled", they are basically non-functional. I have a friend who is a male body builder and at one point he was SO overmuscled he could not even do something as simple as swing a bat. And yes, these horses are prone to all kinds of anomalies, most of which make them unrideable, and living in pain.

I can't tell if this is serious, but how about get one of these instead?





At least they have the bone to support themselves.

Ooh who wants to get me one of those for Christmas?

I'm not sure what breed those horses are in the OP, nor what they would be used for. But when I saw them I cringed and thought "whoa". Now I like a muscular horse, but that is just way ott for my taste.

Could someone please enlighten me about the breed, and for what purpose the OP could possibly want to her horse to look like that? Also, what is HYPP, and is it only horses like that that have it? I'm sorry to hijack the thread, or display my ignorance, but I'm quite curious.

Every girl wants their own LOVE STORY, I found mine... :)
