Unfortunately, I don't work with a trainer. I wish I could, but everything I make goes toward just paying my board or buying feed. I'm teaching myself reining, which I realize is difficult to impossible to do. But I truly love the sport, always have, and always will, so I absorb everything I can about it from books to videos. Since I have no guidance, this is why I am taking it really slowly so that I don't mess up the sliders.
I'm just really concerned that he'll start colicing and/or develop vices from being inside all the time. Right now, he is on only 7-8 hours of stall time, the rest is pasture with several other horses (about 16 hours outside). There is just no way he would be able to stay inside and keep a healthy mind and body, unfortunately. If you think of any solution, please let me know! Thanks!
