Hi!
Thank you for your suggestions and opinions. I think that it would be better for him to lose some weight but he lives in a free stall barn (Is this the right word? I'm talking of a stable where the horse can go in and out whenever it wants to) together with an Arabian gelding. During the day, some other Arabians join them and they have hay most of the time (which is very good for the digestion of horses, but not very good for horses that are already overweight). So the problem is that I can't put all the horses on a diet just because he is "a little bit fat". However, I think that at least a part of his fat will turn into muscles if he has enough exercise :)

I haven't got any sand here to ride in, but I rode him a lot in the snow during winter. He liked that - and once again I was impressed by his endurance :)

Here are some photos of my cute little Mister (they were taken in September):

No, I'm from another part of Austria but Austria is, generally spoken, very eligible for trail riding (as the landscape is very beautiful). I also used to ride haflingers.
