My filly is underweight and i had been giving her rice bran meal with a bit of sweet feed to help her weight and i would give it to her after each workout. But we had a series of storms come out and i couldnt take her out of her stall to be worked and i think all that didnt help her. As soon as i let her go in the roundpen, i just stood there and she ran circles into the ground.
Im going to stop her extra grain and just continue her regular vitamins and see about those supplements you guys have suggested.

Any tips on preventing this other than to warm up you horse and to cool her down afterwards..?
I sound so new but all my other horses i have owned have never done this to me before so its a whole new ball game.

Drop the sweet feed, bad. Feed something low in non structual carbs/low starch, higher fat. http://www.triplecrownfeed.com/artic...orse-nutrition

Is it stabilized rice bran? If not, this might be your problem, or adding to your problem.

That should be "stabilized and fortified"...
