    Going riding tomorrow...

    Down the road...

    I will be saddling up and heading down my driveway and then down my road. I am very excited as I haven't been able to ride much lately and actually do not have to be somewhere at such and such a time. I can head out and not have to be back for hours if need be!! The only thing that could potentially go wrong is that the world comes to an end between now and then...

    Since I will be going in a relatively straight line, what exercises can anyone suggest we work on?

    I look forward to your ideas!!

    I work on leg yield on trails. From one edge of the trail to another and back.

    Yes, that and stop, back up, walk on. Even disengagethe hip, turn around go back a bit, then redisengage, go forward again. Anything to keep your horse checking in with you.

    You can do transitions within whatever gait you're doing. Small/collected trot, normal/working trot, big/lengthen trot, etc.

    Work on posting the trot.

    I am notorious for making up equitation patterns as I go down the road or trails. I look ahead of me and make clear decisions as to walk to big tree, immediately pick up working trot. Halt at rock, back three steps, then canter on left lead. Etc.
