As im sure some of you know...i just recently got my first horse. I have pretty much spent all my time trying to build a bond with him...ive only rode him once. Anyway, he's a gelding walking horse named Major and I really don't know how old he is..somewhere between 8 and 12. My kids will be starting school next week and im going to have plenty of time to do some riding. What I need to know is how much riding should I start out with? He's been standing around in the pasture gettin fat n sassy
What im trying to say is he hasnt been getting a lot of exercise. I don't want to over do it at first...but my goal is to get to ride 4 or 5 days a week. Any suggestions on how to build him up for that?
