    Moved my horse to a sloped pen

    I moved my horse last week to a sloped pen with some deep ground. All I can say is that she looks fabulous and I can feel her condition muscles under me. Plenty of hills to work her. Can't wait for the results 6 months from now.

    Ive always loved the sloped hills for pasture boarding... It's like a self-workout for them!
    BTW, she is STUNNING! That last picture is simply beautiful.

    She looks good.

    Holy cow though... all that green stuff to eat! My guys would founder just looking at it.

    I moved Shiloh from the flatlands of west Texas – no hills for miles and miles– to the hilly area of eastern Oklahoma a little over a year ago. The difference in his muscle tone is astonishing! His neck, chest, shoulders, butt and back have all taken on new definition. I hope you mare does just as well. And as for me it was a real transition learning how to ride up and down hills, just as it was new experience for him.

    tlwidener: "Holy Cow" ... forget the grass .. she is surrounded by 500 cows. That means lots of cow work ..YES!!!

    Shiloh: I know what you mean, I can feel her strength in each stride underneath me. After hauling me on her back a few months she'll fill up nicely.

    Endurgirl & Smokin: Thanks ...here is a good shot of her profile.



    Before I moved her..

    Hills are the best! I have a twenty-year-old here that is retired, and he looks like he's ridden regularly because he goes up & down hills in his pasture everyday. It's pretty amazing what they can do
