Miracle

My daughters new horse she bought at the auction. She's an 8 yr. old, she rides great for anyone, but has developed issues when being cinched up. She begins rearing and trying to pull loose.

Yes she needs groceries but will be nice once she fills out. I wouldn't be riding her with her topline like that until she gets some weight/muscle on. If she is being really cinchy it could be a sign of ulcers or just uncomfortable on her topline with the saddle fit. You should get that checked out.

I recommend getting a wormer for your horse, first of all, then giving her loads of grass and hay, until she puts on weight.
A lot of mares are 'mareish' when it comes to tightening the girth anyway, but if she rears up, she might have something going on there. Get a vet to check her out.

Yes, we wormed her while I was there. The man I got Mystery from said he had wormed her, but I picked up Safeguard yesterday, anyway. I don't live down there, but will be sending it down on Monday when my granddaughter goes.

There is not a lot of pasture, but my sil is planning to get pasture grass seed, we are taking them to the ditch outside to graze. We're going through a 50lb bag a week, per horse, which everyone says is about average.

Ulcers are always a possibillity. But I'm willing to bet that since the horse has been ridden by several people for who knows how long you've had her, its caused her a lot of pain due to not having anything to support the weight of the rider. I only say this because you said that she has developed this habit. Which means that she didnt do it when you first got her.

I would leave her be and not ride her until she fills out.

This is what happens when you have democrats in office

I just emailed my daughter, and told her all of this, and her inlaws are telling her the same thing. We all want whats best for the horses. We have never owned skinny horses before, only fat ones.

Lots of hay and if I was going to give grain I would give a high fat and maybe add some soaked beet pulp. With the right diet and nutrition I'm sure she will come along nicely. The link for the amouts of feed is good, but of course because you are needing to gain a lot of weight, the numbers are going to be a lot higher.
