How to warm a horse up after sitting for winter?
So, how do you start working with your horse after having them sit for winter? Some people do not have suitable place to train for winter, as a indoor arena might not be at hand and the ground could be dangerous. (Ice, unknown material hidden within the snow, risk of hypothermia, etc.)
I am partially looking for advice for warming up my mare. She is broke, but has sat for the most part for winter. She has not been ridden at all during winter, either. My dad told me that he wanted to go for a ride this weekened, so it is sort of short notice. She is also coming into heat so she is a bit moody. Dx All I need is for her not to buck the old man off, steering and hissy fits will not really matter, as I will be holding the reins for the most part.
