Thank you both so much! It's been a long 10 months, but every time that I look into those big, brown eyes I know that it has been worth all the work, time and money. The day she came off of the trailer I cried. Her previous owners, due to the economy, just put her to pasture, stopped feeding her, and basically walked away :( Once I got her back into some kind of shape, I started riding her and it's been love ever since. I have pieced together parts of her past, the biggest surprise finding out that she was an Irish born TB with some rather impressive bloodlines. We started jumping about 3 months ago, and I am almost certain that this mare has had extensive training over fences. She is very impressive, and is currently do very well on our local show circuit. Any advice on how to build some muscle along the topline? It is getting slightly better if I compare a timeline of pics. I try to work her doing quite a bit of long trotting in a collected frame. I have a feeling that she was allowed to go around with her head held very high and very hollow backed for a long time. Thanks again for your input.
