I just wondered how often do you think is reasonable to school Kissie. I have a few days off work,now and I schooled her today, but do you think I should leave it tomorrow and just hack, or will it be ok to school her again? We do about half an hour of just trotting circles, figures of eight etc, alternating with short burst of walk. Thank you. x
I school probably 3 times per week sometimes 4 and that includes a 45min-1hour lesson, then aim to lunge on the pessoa once a week, then the other 3 days of the week are hacking, jumping or days off, depending on what else is planned e.g. shows, hunting. I would say school tomorrow, she will be fine
Thanks for the replies.
Well, I schooled her again, today-she was very speedy! I kept making her stop, then trot again, (no cantering)but she was till speedy! I don't feel like we achieved anything today! Never mind-at least we got some exercise! lol
I used to school about 2-3 times per week at the old yard but since I moved the hacking is amazing. So I'm finding it harder to get the motivation to school, would much rather go for a blast in the woods instead or go off exploring
I have been schooling 2-3 times a week recently to get us in shape for the show season. We're almost there now so I feel like I can relax a little bit and have some fun out hacking. I have certainly noticed that he's been reluctant to go in our school and very eager to get out the gate so he has been feeling the work!
I think you would be fine to school her again as long as you keep it varied which it sounds like you are. You know kissie better than us so just see how she is on the day. x
