This is something you are right to be concerned about, and I'd suggest talking
with your vet. Endurance horses use a lot of stored energy reserves on a ride,
and need to replenish them. Kahlil was always ravenous for a day or two
following a ride, especially a tough ride. He got an extra grain ration for
those two days (2x Sunday, 1.5x Monday, back to normal Tuesday).
