Back in December (back when I was riding her on trial and she was still at her old owner's barn), she was on half a scoop of feed twice a day (I don't remember the brand) , two flakes of hay (timothy/alfalfa mix), and pasture for a few hours a day. She certainly did need all that food. Her body score at the time was 6-7.
I moved her to my barn in January and changed her food. She was on half a scoop of Strategy once a day with free choice hay and all day turnout. This continued until it started to get warm in March and the hay was removed, leaving her with grass.
Currently, she is on half a scoop of Strategy once a day with constant access to rich pasture.
Work wise, in December she was ridden three times a month at most on trail rides at mostly a walk. When I got her, I started riding her daily. I conditioned her slowly throughout the months for CTRs. After she was legged up, my usual ride (five days a week) consisted of an hour or two out, 50% slow saddle gait, 10% canter, and the rest an energetic walk.
