I start with hacking out on the roads to tighten and strengthen tendons, always in walk, we can build up from 15 mins to 2 to 3 hrs a day in walk on the road.
I NEVER canter on the roads, the percussion of it is not good for thier legs. If i want to canter on hacks I pop them up onto a grass verge.
All my horses have perfectly clean legs, not a single lump, bump, or splint in sight.
RIDE your horse FORWARDS and keep him STRAIGHT
