    Of my heavy in the bridle horse, my dressage trainer (who is also a judge btw) used to say, try to ride her above the bit, because she's not going to stay there.

    Not a small circle... About 30m. Think lesson horse type circle. Bigger than a dressage ring. The horse is senior and if he stands in a stall he gets quite stiff. He has a nice paddock...

    Poor girl! The full bags of milk are the worst bit. Less food and more exercise for mom will help her get through this bit.
