Haflinger Weight Loss Progress

This little guy has been out of work for around two years and had just been on pasture doing nothing. I'm getting him back in shape and training him now. I just wanted to show off what a diet and fitness regime (and makeover!) can do in around a month's time.

We still have a ways to go, but seeing the progress like this encourages me greatly!

Sorry that you dislike the pulled mane look! To each her own. In my opinion, nothing says "dressage horse in training" like a neatly pulled mane to show off the topline.

Aww...but the breed look for haflingers - even in dressage - is a full mane.
But good job on the weight loss!

^ Ah, but it's not required. I've seen a variety of Haffies this year at schooling and sanctioned shows with dressage braids, roached manes, and running braids. I'm really picky about keeping manes long though. They have to be really nice for me to consider keeping it long.

Braids are common, but most haflinger enthusiests feel roached manes are sacrilege, but its your horse. ;)

Yeah, roached manes are not for me... and I own a Fjord cross. Still not happening! ;)

He's looking great already!

I liked his mane much better when it's pulled c:

I love the pulled mane look! Look at that thick and muscular neck. The pulled mane also allows more emphasis to his face. I pull my horses manes too. Your boy is looking great! Keep up the good work.

Great work so far! He's very cute and looks super good with his new physique!
