Hi - we have a horse that we have put some weight on. But now we need to stregnthen his legs to help account for his new weight. Any recommendations on what we can work on him with (i.e., lunging, riding at a slow pace with a lighter weight, etc.). He does not seem lame but does seem a little stiff in the knees at times. No swelling or heat in the legs or the feet.
I am thinking we will need to build him back slowly over all of this winter before we will get him where he needs to be.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! He was was a couple hundred pounds underweight when we got him.
