Re: How often do you ride and do you vary your type of work each time?
I tend to school during the week and hack over the weekend.
In schooling i tend to do about half an hour, lots of walk trot transitions, then some canter work, then 10 minutes heavy work, i.e down on the bit, engaging hind quaters (my boy is very lazy, so needs to be nice and warmed up to work properly lol), then cool down on a long rein.
I have one lesson a week where we do half an hour schooling then half an hour jumping.
He has roughly one day off a week, depending on weather!
I dont exercise myself, I should really as I am so unfit, but I've found poo picking and mucking out a stable is enough for me!
