How much grain do you give her ?
Maybe try some kind of supplement to have her gain weight ?

I don't see a skinny horse. I don't see a fat horse either, but she ain't that skinny.

It's true she can probably use a little more groceries. I don't see why you riding her and putting some miles on her would be an issue. The main thing is that you are dealing with a green broke horse and you have to be ready to deal with green horse behavior or reactions.

It sounds like you're nervous to get on. If your husband has already sat on her, why not ask him to get the first few rides on her until you find you're comfortable getting on?

I agree. I do not see a skinny horse. She looks fine. Too many people think horses that aren't fat and are a fine weight are thin.
I don't get it. She'd be fine to ride weight wise.
