ISSUES WITH YOUR HORSE?

Before looking into all sorts of weird and wonderful solutions, supplements, operations etc try thinking how you different you feel when you are really fit (or not as the case may be). I know that I feel a whole lot better, stronger and more able to 'push' when I am fundamentally fit and how much more so with horses. Make sure a significant part of your training goes to keeping your horse appropriately fit. By the way it is OK for your horse to sweat and pant. It's good for the system and is the way you increase fitness. Of course if your horse has not been worked for a while you need to build up slowly but your horse can do a lot more exercise than you are probably doing. Schooling sessions are all very well but 2-3 times a week of a fully concentrated schooling session is more than enough with the rest as good, long rides out over varying ground and terrain. A general good level of fitness will not only help your horse ride better but keep him more healthy and happy and less prone to injury.
