Any suggestions on how to ride a cold backed horse. Exercises before or after?

Lunge then walk horse out for 15 minutes after session to stretch and cool down muscles
Hi Freya,
To supplement what Sydney stated, lunging is a useful and effective tool. If you have the resources, utilize a solarium and Back on Track products!
I have leased cold backed horses and I usually lunged them for at least five minutes to let them get their bucks out and they weren't sensitive during my ride.
