hey so I have some questions about my horsesweight and build.
so this is my horse ^
she is a 7 year old ottb mare
I have some questions about her weight and build. so obviously she is ribby but aside from her ribs, does she look too bad weight-wise? keep in mind she was like this when we got her and she has good quality hay and grain. she is on about 3 flakes of T/A each day with night turnout (5pm-7am). she gets a scoop and a half of senior feed.
I genuinely can't tell what's wrong with her build but something looks off. I ride her typically 4-5 times a week and I'll either do flatwork, trailriding, galloping, or jumping work with her.
What would you guys advise I do to work on her build? I think its a topline issue from what I can see but Id like other peoples input.
for some background info this was her when she raced ^
so I don't think it's a problem with her natural build as you can see in this picture she looks just overall better.
I'm just mainly trying to find out:
1) what's wrong with her build/what is need to work on
2)what excerises I can do to make her look more "correct"
any help is appreciated!
the picture above is kinda what I'm aiming for her to look like if that makes sense.
