    Schedual for bringing my horse into shape, without him going lame.

    Hey guys, I am receiving a new horse in a couple weeks. He has been ridden lightly (walk, very little trotting) for years as a summer camp horse. Since the camp closed, he has been stuck in a pasture with other horses and no real exersize. I am looking to get him in better shape and eventually be able to canter him for up 10 minutes a ride.

    I am TERRIFIED of him going lame in this process. Especially considering it is very cold where we are (about 30 degrees).
    I will take whatever steps necessary to ensure he does not go lame.

    I have an idea of schedual we could go buy to ease him in the process, but if anyone has any more knowledge I would appriciate another opinion.

    Also, I am heavier then his usual rider. He was ridden by children 50-100 lbs. I am 200. He is a big horse, but I know it will make a difference.

    I will be watching this thread. :) My new boy spend the last year walking around too, so getting him in shape should take a similar plan to your boy.
