Riding after the horse has eaten?
So, with my new work schedule the only time I can really ride is after work, I get off work at about 5pm witch is the same time the horses are fed, I rather not try to change when they are fed since there out with other horses and I can't really not feed them all at once, I have never had an issue with finding time to ride tell now, so i'm wondering, how long should I wait she has eaten? Do I need to wait? Is it bad to ride right after the horses has eaten? I only plan on doing some trail riding manly walking, but maybe some trotting, lately I have been only riding twice a week on my days off and every time I ride Willow she's a total brat and likes to buck, plus she's quite out of shape and riding only 2 days a week doesn't seam to help, Onyx is currently in training so he gets ridden 3 days a week by the trainer and 2 days a week by either me or my sister, and he's great... but I'm getting sick of Willow's bucking, she seams to get better after about 45 minutes of riding, I'm pretty sure her problem comes from just not being ridden enough since last fall she was great... any advice would be great! Thanks!
