I am going to start doing dressage with my mare Phoebe.
At the minute she is out due to lameness, but I am a long term thinker and like to have plans done up.
So I was just wondering if any of you could help me with making a plan of starting off in the lower levels of dressage and working my way up.
As in which steps come first before learning a certain movement and eventually working up to collection and extension. If you guys could help me with a plan I will stick to it and will use this thread to post updates and ask for help on how I am getting on with Phoebe.
And I was also wondering how many schooling sessions a week should I do?
I do showjumping competitions at the weekend when she is back into proper work and would like to work around this on the basis that I would include the one or two shows at the weekend I would also like to include one trial ride or trek a week one jumping session a week and I don't know how many schooling sessions?? I would also like to include a hill work or conditioning session.
So if anyone would like to help I would be very grateful.
