Post Lazy Horses? Does heat affect?

My horse has been out with about three weeks due to an abscess but now I am trying to get him back in shape!

With the cold weather he has been more hyper which is good because he is soo lazy! (he has the thickest winter coat of the whole barn) Yesterday is was 65 in connecticut and it was gorgeous! Brodie of course did not like it..he was lazy and did not want to work but I made him because he is a little porker!

Even my firend's thouroughbred didnt want to move! Our horses bothe jumpeda lazily. (Pictures Below)

With my horses 3 weeks off....well it didn't help me much! Thank god for a lesson on monday!

One foot in front one foot behind! Haha

So after all of this my horse trotted so nicely! He extended even thought he could a little more, but it was good in my book!

Again my riding is not the best but I was proud of my horse that day!

* and he hasn't jumped in a bit but I was surprised how he remembered some of it! Haha

We have an indoor so he will hopefully be fit for show season! We want to enter hunter jumpers....but he still has to learn flying lead changes.

I would not be jumping a horse after 3 weeks off. I would be bringing them back into flat work for at least a week or so before jumping again.

W have he has been working for about three weeks my trainer said I could do small cross-rails to get his hind end working right again. Other than that we just do flat work :)

65 is hot? Lucky duck!

Temperature does, of course, impact their work ethic. Would you be running around as much if it was hot outside? It's much easier to do something athletic when it's nice and crisp out :)

65 sounds nice right now. I gotta agree though, my gelding on Saturday when it was 50 out was peppy as all get out, in the warmer days especially in the 80s with high humidity he's lazy, not that I can blame him.
