I've been having health problems with my mare, and basically due to being lame 75% of the time reccently, she's been out of work and gained quite a bit of weight.
My vet things the extra weight is contributing to her problems, so she's now on a course of bute so that I can excerise her and get the weight off.
I'm just wondering what you guys think would be the best way to work off the weight. I'm going to start with lunging everyday as my vet recommends, but I want to try some other things so she doesn't get too bored or too hollow from repetitve lunging.
I want there to be a fairly regular routine, as knowing what she is doing helps with her confidence issues. I also want to try some excercises that are going to help build up trust and a bond between us.
I've thought about freeschooling or something like that, but i've never tried it before.
What do y'all think is the best way to get some weight off her quickly? Just after some opinions really.
