How often should I work my horse?
I recently purchased my 5yo mare from our barn manager. She is a wonderful horse, a tad lazy, and wasn't getting worked much when I got her. I've been doing light round pen sessions with her and/or riding 4-5 days a week. Is this too much you think? We only stay in the round pen for 20ish minutes and if I ride it's less than an hour. I want to ease her back into regular work and don't want to overdo it. She seems to be doing great and isn't showing any signs of being overworked, but what do y'all think?
