I am the proud owner of a 17 yr old Ex-Racer (Trotter). I only had him for 3 days now. Jasir is a lovley horse. A life-insurance on a hack. He really is not scared of anything (even the tanks that went by today did not bother him).
So now my question. How can I gently build up his muscles? He has been off the racetrack for 6 yrs now but never really been trained properly. He is very stiff on his right side! I don't ride him at the moment we just go for long walks and I loose school him. I don't wanna overdo it with him coz he had quiet a horrid life so far!
