Well, it might be a bad idea to feed and then go do an intense workout session. Imagine having a huge dinner. You aren't going to hit the gym immediately afterwards for Zumba and a four mile run. That could cause major upset to your stomach. You want to have a little time to digest. Imagine a stalled horse. Finished his hay in the middle of the night. Pulling him out of his stall immediately after he finished his morning hay and grain and working his guts out could definitely cause problems. Putsing shouldn't.

It depends on the horse via giving hay before workout or after.

I did both for Sky as he was gaining weight but I made sure to give him a really nice warmup and did so as I took ages to groom him.

He hasn't been sick yet. Just be careful..

Thanks guys! At our barn we're super big on hay, so when we groom the horses get 2/3 flakes.
I decided I'll just give her one before, and then once she's cool she can have some more.
