I would let the horse decide within reason obviously. It doesn't sound like he is trying to run around as fast as he can when you put him in, and you are paying attention to him showing signs of being tired. Once you feel comfortable, and if you can, take him up and down some hills to help build up his butt. It sounds like you are doing a good job getting him back into shape slowly. Can't wait to see how he turns out.

The mare we have is the opposite. Makes him look even worse. Lol
She was a little chubby but has tightened up just by following him
Around the pasture all day. It is really funny.

I guess I worry about overdoing him. We plan to start riding him in the
Larger pasture as soon as my new saddle arrives. There is a hill in there!

Just like last night, we went out to see them and they were in the back
Of the pasture. When we first got him, we would have to wait as he slowly
Walked up. Last night, he actually galloped!
