What an improvement! She's already lost that skeletal look. Here on the the Thoroughbred farm we would start some hand walking to gradually build up some muscle and condition.

My round pen is in the 2 1/2 acres that I have my other 3 horses in.... can't take her there. I moved it several months ago. Oops. @robhuncor you are right, I can take her for walks. I have a lunge line somewhere..... LOL
If you have a round pen that has a tallish fence try free lunging. It is nice as the horse is able to learn commands like walk, trot, canter, woah, AH AH AH, etc. All you need is pretty much a round pen, and a lunge whip. At my barn, who rescues horses, they will use that and will also help exercise cooped up horses and ones who aren't sound. It is such a good exercise for the horse.
