I have an 19 year old arabian mare. She gets two flakes of Bermuda a day in her slow feeder during the summer, and gets 4 hours of pasture turn out a day. I do trail riding (when b myself we use ALL 3 gears A LOT). She has the summer off because of a attitude issue, but that might just be a magnesium deficiency so she will be getting epsom salts to supplement.

I ride 3 times a week in winter so she gets a half scoop full of strategy healthy edge turned into a mush once a day along with her two flakes.

Baby Girl:

Baby Girl is an 8-year-old SSH. She is a CTR horse who is currently in pasture condition/not competing. She is ridden lightly three days a week with a hard workout thrown in there somewhere to keep her legged up. She has PSSM, so she eats 2 cups of vegetable oil, two pounds of Legends Performance Pellet, six cups of beet pulp, 1 ounce of Grostrong minerals, and 1000 IU of vitamin E -- split into two meals daily. She is on lush pasture (coastal bermuda) and wears a grazing muzzle 24/7.

Miss Kitty:

Miss Kitty is an eleven-year-old Arabian mare. She's an endurance horse who is currently training and competing. She's ridden four/fives days a week, with at least two heavy workouts a week. She is an easy keeper. She eats one pound of FRM Cool Balance, an ounce of Grostrong minerals, and a cup of beet pulp daily. She occasionally gets probiotics. She is on the same pasture as Baby Girl and grazes freely 24/7. After a workout, she gets an extra meal.

This is Mr. Jayne. He gets about 25lbs of bermuda grass hay per day plus 2oz salt and 4oz of a ration balancer. He also gets a couple of pounds of soaked alfalfa and beet pellets around endurance rides. We do endurance and trail riding.

I don't have any pictures of TJ that show him off in a good way XD and I don't own him otherwise I would post some pic's. :) But he's the main horse I rode for years.

TJ from the age of 4 years up until a couple of years ago (he's 13 now) was a trail/ ranch horse and jumper. He worked 6 days a week from 9 am to 4 pm everyday. All he got was a pound of ration balancer (not sure what brand) and all he could eat coastal bermuda hay and pasture from 5pm to 8 am. He stayed a nice 5 in condition and even had a bit of a belly. He is a 14.2 Quarter pony, now 'retired' to being a back-up mount for one of the ranch hands.

My horse is a soon-to-be-10 year old Lusitano x QH. He gets 1 lb of Triple Crown 30% Supplement and about a half cup of flax seeds, split into two meals. In the evening he gets a mash with all his supplements made up of 6 oz beet pulp pellets, 1 oz rice bran, MSM, Platinum Performance Selenium Yeast, Platinum Performance Vitamin E, and SmartDigest Ultra.

He also gets free choice hay, and goes through about 35 pounds a day

I ride primarily dressage (3-4 times per week), with jumping a couple times a month and trail rides once a week or so in the summer.

Here's Garzo, looking quite dashing:

Don't have any good pics because of weather issues but my gelding gets about 2 lbs maybe a little more of sweet feed in the winter, grass hay all the time and then has supplements out in the field. During the summer the sweet feed is cut back a lot or non existent and he just gets the hay, grass, and supplements.

As for his activities he's outside year round rain or shine and NEVER comes in (his choice). That keeps him active and fit. Then I ride him about three times a week and do training two other times in dressage.

My mare Rya is an Arabian/Dutch WB cross. Super easy keeper. We ride a couple times a week, with Dressage as our primary aim. That being said I haven't been riding her much and she's a bit chubby and out of shape. I will hopefully be getting back to riding 5 days a week.

She gets roughly 20lbs a day of first cut local grass hay, less in the summer when she goes out on pasture with a muzzle.

AM and PM she gets 1/4 cup flax, 1/8 cup Triple Crown vitamin supplement, 1 Tbsp. Brewer's yeast, 1 Tbsp salt. It's mostly powder but I never have to worry about her getting it all in as she licks the bowl clean when she's done.

I have an 8 yo Appendix gelding, he gets a pound of ADM StayStong per day. Six flakes of jig hay, and is turned out from 8-5 on grass pasture. He also has a small paddock attached to his stall with some grass. I just started conditioning him for endurance and we only have a few training rides under our belts (I bought him three weeks ago and have been taking it slow!) but I plan on building up to riding 4-5 times a week at at least an hour to two hours and one challenging ride thrown in. So far we have done a 5 mile, 6 mile, and 8 mile ride consisting of trotting and walking and he has energy to spare. If he does start losing condition I will add ADM MoorGlo as a fat supplement :).
