Working out an Out of Shape Horse
I recently purchased a horse that had been starved a year ago. He was a bag of bones and has been on pasture for the last year and good feed for the last two months. However, he lost all of his muscle when he was starved and is now still skinny, but also out of shape.
I'm an English rider and wondering what exercises I should be doing with him (no more riding time than 4 hours a week) to help him and me get fit. I have just been walking him this week and plan to start trotting for brief interval next week as well as adding some cavelleti. Any suggestions are welcome.
Equito Ergo Sum
I ride; therefore, I am!
