    That's fine, I was just disagreeing with that training method and posting what I have found produces better horses.

    She can still follow your method if the OP chooses. :)

    For the record, Spastic_Dove and Soul, from everything I've always been taught neither one of you are wrong.

    You do want to drill the training into a horse that your just starting, they need to get to know it. But once their going well enough, you can lay off and only practice once a week or less. Trail ride the rest. Everyone teaches differently, that's just what I've learned.

    Yes. When you are starting them, you train in the pattern. Then you perfect it with teaching how they should change leads between the barrels and all the other things. Walking the horse up hills will tone and help build muscle in the backside and all over, so trail riding is good. It also helps keep the horse quiet. I wasn't clear with the first post that you should just sit up in the saddle troting the pattern all day. Maybe 10 to 20 min. A few times a week to start and once they get the pattern, decrease the amount and how long you do the pattern.
