Also not sure where to start.
I recently adopted a horse, and I was told he has not been ridden in 3ish years. He is overweight and out of shape! According to the adoption agency he was an excellent, quiet trail horse.
He is a 16 year old gelding, his ground manners have been great so far, aside from some resistance to the bit. I posted about this in the health forum, he had really nasty breath, having the vet out today.
I want to start working with him and getting him back in the riding mind frame, but I'm not sure where to start.
I plan on lunging him this weekend..what else can I do?
This will all be outside work, as we have no arena.
Thanks in advance. :)
