How to build up muscle in an un-rideable shape?
Recently, I bought a very out-of-shape horse. Smart choice, eh? Well, basicly, his owner was four months' behind on his board, and it was horrifying to see him wasting away till he was practicly only skin and bones. His owner hasn't been out in a year, so I contacted her and bought him and all of his tack and such.
Well, the only problem is he is un-ridable and un-lungable because of his horrid condition. I've started walking him in the arena, but even afterd 5-6 times around, his knees start shaking and he lowers his head real low. So how do I build up that muscle he so desprately needs??
