I swear I can't win with Shaggy's weight! Now he is a over weight pasture puff that I can bearly get my girth around! So whats a good way to go about getting him to thin down(besides a grazing muzzle which I plan on getting eventually) and get him building muscle? I ride him maybe 3-4 times a week. There usually short rides(maybe 30 minutes to an hour) unless I go out on the trail.
Should I ride longer?(which I wouldn't mind lol)
Should I start lunging him on days I don't ride?
I was wondering if because I havent been able to canter him in so long(but if read my last post I can canter him a little and I'm working my way up!) that if I got him cantering on the lunge line it would help with his weight problem?
Thanks for reading
