What are the best tips you can give me for getting my horse to lose weight?
The first thing you should do if you want to get your horse to lose weight is to talk to your vet. Only him can help you make an efficient program for your horse to get a bit slimmer.
In general it is best for the horse to lose weight progressively, going too fast can be dangerous for his health. Basically, to get a horse to lose weight, you have to reduce his food, and/or increase his trainings, but once more, you have to be assisted by your vet, in order not to put at risk your horse's health.
