    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.

    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.

    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 :)
