My 14.2 mare, Beauty who I have on loan is quite overweigt and was when I got her. She has a cresty neck. She is quite a compact pony. I'm from Northern Ireland were it rains nearly all the time and I just have an outdoor arena. I also if I'm totally honest don't ride that much as I have a disability that effects my balance. She is also difficult to lunge. She puts her head towards me as if she was going to come into the middle and run over the top of me. When I go to change her to the other rein she slightly rears up.
All the other horses are out but I'm afraid to put her out as I don't want her getting fatter. I'm at a loose end at the min. I've even noticed when she walks she makes a slight blowing noise as if walking is to much for her. She's can't do fast work anyway because of this tumor.
