Weight loss for the pasture horse
My young qh mare gets fed grain morning and night, she has access to unlimited hay full time, and grass but the grass isn't too lush and rich.
She has a bit of a belly. She's USUALLY ridden 4x week (occasionally give or take a day) and we are gradually increasing fitness. BO said that we should muzzle her to get off the belly. Not sure if I should cut back on grain, muzzle her, etc. She's never been muzzled before (she's kept "naked" outside usually, sometimes blanketed in the winter but never even haltered).
I don't need her to lose a TON of weight but we need to cut back on that little belly. What would you recommend doing? Thanks :)
God bless, englishaqh (:
