I haven't really been able to ride my horse since last summer, but even before then she has gained quite a bit of weight since last winter. The farrier has told us that she had early signs of lamintis showing, so we cut back her hay. She's lost a bit of weight, enough to be noticable, but not enough for her to be considered a "healthy weight". I haven't been able to work with her during last summer as much as I really wanted to, due to breaking my right foot twice. I hadn't been able to work with her over the winter either, due to the large amounts of snow and ice. We don't have an indoor arena or anything, we just have a small barn with enough room for three stalls, hay, and our tractor. We also have a paddock and two pastures. During the winter we keep the horses in the dirt paddock, so they don't tear up the pastures. Now that it is getting warmer out, I'm beginning to work with her again and my foot is getting better, although I still have problems with my foot and my hip from previous accidents.
Anyway, getting to the point... Could you guys help me come up with a good exercise and diet plan for her? She's a 16 year old mare, about 14.3hhs. She's a crossbreed of Friesian/Arabian/Welsh Cob.
Since I'm in class right now, I can't put any pictures up of back when she was a healthy weight, to what she looks like now. I will do that when I get home. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
