Need help with how to exersice an underweight thoroughbred

She was very very underweight when I got her one month ago she's gaining nicely but still very ribby and needs a lot on her top line

She's starting to get quite a bit of energy!! I have her on nutrena pro force fuel twice a day and soaked beet pulp twice a day.

Is it okay to lounge her alittle everyday to avoid her being really hot when she's back up to weight to ride or is it best to just let her sit in the pasture till she's up to weight? Never had an under weight horse.

How much hay are you giving her? How much p of the neutrons and how much beet pulp? All should be by weight.

You need to start working her before she gets too big for her britches. Lunge or do some RP work, groundwork, tying lessons even some light riding as long as you have a good saddle fit. Work is going to help build up her muscle.

Do you turn her out to allow her to blow off steam? That's a good muscle builder.

I did light lunging today just walk and trot for about 30 minutes and she seemed pretty worn out pretty fast so I don't want to over do it how many times a week should I do it and for how long?

Depends on how underweight she is.
Picture? I'm assuming she's healthy otherwise.
