I Have a 14 yr old quarter/walker mare, same one in my picture. She's a big sweetie. However, she is REALLY out of shape, hasnt been ridden in 6 years, and we suspect abuse from the previous owners.( we've been told she was getting shot with a bebe gun by their kids) Were getting weight back on her really well, and she's really perked up, complete change since we got her. However, I need some tips for getting her used to riding again?? And back into shape?
P.S. I've loved horses since I was little and had lessons before as a kid, now 18, this is my first horse. (recently moved to farm where my family can have them)
