Golden Oldie
 
I have an "aged" paint pony that was Evented for the last couple years at beginner novice level. She is getting older and stiffer and i want to know how to keep her going strong and comfortably for the rest of the winter before i move up to a more advanced and capable mount. In the mean time, my mare and i are going to enjoy a relaxing winter. What do you recommend for keeping an oldie strong and comfortable?

How old is she? When you say "aged" I'm thinking 20+...so that is what my answers are based on.:P

Don't stall unless you HAVE to, she needs to be able to keep her joints moving.

Lots of warm hay!!! If you haven't already, introduce her to a joint supplement.

Blankets!
