I am trying to build more muscle on my 2.5 year old filly, Breeze. I know hill work is a big thing to do to help build muscle and a good diet... but is there anything else I could do, like lunging at a trot in a smaller circle, just walking her around, etc???
What I will be doing a lot of this winter is taking her into the ditch, making her walk and trot up and down the small hill (the ditch) through the snow (it is is soft enough) and feeding her this:
She will get this daily, I usually feed it to her at night, as I don't have time to go there in the morning. Is there anything I can add to it, to help build muscle?
I will also be lunging her at a walk and trot a lot, with and without the saddle (as soon as I find a girth that will fit her), but I don't really lunge her at a lope, as I don't want to put to much stress on her joints, as she is still young.
Is there anything else I can do?
