Exclamation Conditioning Schedule

So, I finally decided to start LD endurance with my mare. Our first one will be the middle of June. She is 12 and a rescue. She has a natural will to "go go go". She has great stamina, energy and speed. We do not know her breed for sure. The rescue said she has Arab and the vet said she also has TB in her. I think there is also some QH. But we don't really know for a fact. I have been riding her regularly since Oct. So she is fit and ready to start going for longer and harder rides.
What I really would like is for your thoughts and opinions on a conditioning schedule. I want to figure out is a day to day routine with the information I get from you guys and what I already know, so she will be ready! Thanks so much!! :)
Here is a pic from when we got her in oct, she looks about the same with just a little more muscle. Usually her tail is up, lol.

I don't think facebook links work here. You have to either upload them to the forum or put them on photobucket and then copy and paste in the IMG code.

Carpe Diem!

I just checked out at the suggestion of another HF member. There is a New Riders Handbook on there that has a training schedule for LD and Endurance. I thought it seemed like a really good guideline. Easy to understand for someone like me who has never done a mileage race.
