I recently moved my almost 5-year-old green horse, Cinder to a new barn (about 4 hours move) and was wandering, how long I should wait for her to settle down, before I ride her?

Hello Jillian,

I think it depends on your horse, and how stressed she is. Maybe for the few first days, just take her for a walk, in hand, show her around. I think after 2-3 days you can start to ride her, show her around while being under the saddle 🙂
