But with his slight weight gain starting so is his energy level. He is now starting to run and start encouraging horses to play and actually participate and look like a normal horse. With that change in energy I want to put it to good use especially since I have a feeling that if he keeps putting on weight he will get hotter and unmanageable enless we start now.
Now I don't need hard work out ideas for him. I have been focusing mainly on leading manners, basic things like stepping over small poles and desentizing him to bags, tarps, noises, cars etc. so far so good.
Now I usually would start lunging/free lunging him to start working on muscle and balance at a walk trot but I feel like even that is pushing it to much. So what type of training/ground work ideas can I do to start having the fat build into useful muscles without over doing it??
Thanks for all your advice :)
