    What is this?

    Uncomfortable being ridden from grass

    I try not to ride mine off grass at any point as she gets swollen glands and cant flex and bend through her neck. Easily sorted she has two hours in before ridden work, or is ridden from the stable first thing. Horses for courses, just need to find the right routine for you.
