    Can I ride yet??

    I rescued a 21 y/o Arab Gelding August 3rd. He was 150lbs underweight, he has come a long way. I rode bare back last week and I am growing more and more impatient to saddle him up and ride.. I am about 160. When can I ride him?? You can only see ribs wen he breathes in.. He looks so good!

    Has he been evaluated by a vet , or been checked for soundness?

    You should ideally only be able to feel the ribs, not see them. I understand he's still putting on weight. If you have had his soundness checked out by a vet go for it, just make sure you are compensating with more forage to keep adding the calories when you start working him.
