Tuesday Video: ‘Mud Walking’ with William Fox-Pitt

If you’ve felt especially bogged down this winter with all the rain, then you’re in good company. According to William Fox-Pitt, that’s the perfect ground to bring your horse back into work on. In his most recent video, William shows us how he likes to start his horses after a holiday: Mud Walking. Yes, it’s just as it sounds. All you need is a muddy field and a barefoot horse. He credits this exercise to strengthening the horses legs in the early season, also arguing that the first time they see mud shouldn’t be at an event. If it’s good enough for WFP, then it’s certainly good enough for me!
