the weathers been so bad latley i havnt been able to work my horse more than twice a week in the past 1.5 months, and its really showing. hes starting to loose muscle and his bum is getting smaller, soi found a new barn with an indoor that im moving him to within a month, does anyone have any ideas on how to condition a 13 y/o quarterhorse?i want to get him back into great shape as soon as possible. the problem is, hes had so much time off he gets stiff easily. thanks!

well to help with the stiffness you could do some stretches with him, before and after work. i also do a good long walking warm up, and cool down (especially in the winter time).

what kinda of riding do you do? english/western etc?
