training schedual:) any opinions ?


So me and Chase are going in are 2 season in eventing and were goign in entry next season :) so exited !!! sense were out for the winter season, i decided to start on my training schedual and my goals and stuff :) i youd love your opionion on it or if you guys have any other ideas that be great
thanks :)

Chase and my training schedual

In a week!!!

● 2 conditioning: -Transitions!!!!! Transitions in the pace trot and canter ( lengthen and shorting strides)
- practice proper gallop. Control speed
- mix of walk and some trot on firm ground to strengthen bones, tendons
and ligaments - working on soft ground = more flexibility
conditioning of 2 = best results -strength and flexibility

● 1 long low session: - control, muscle toning, switch between frame *SPIROLES*
Lengthening and shorting strides et boxes

● 1 flat- make sure to have a good warm up before, CONSISTENCY** in frame & riding
-more natural and comfortable movement, No forced high frame!
-when on verge of falling apart is when chase and I look best
leg yielding
lead changes ~
hind end more power no speed
bring him under himself!
weight distributed =
high, GIVING hands
leg, seat aids ( riding with no hands )
less interferences is gooder!
NO micro managing

● 1 hack/flat: - new place when possible * long low relaxing

Jumping!! When ever you feel the need to or when Chase feels the need to

● Build self-esteem over jumps and XC-Country
● Grid work for straightens, control, stride adjusting (nice natural jump)
● less interference from me! Better jump Chase will have !

I wasn't exactly following your schedule - exactly how long are you giving your horse to come back into shape after having the winter off?

Just yesterday I read an article about fitting a horse and it said a horse need 3-4 weeks to achieve cardiovascular fitness, but his tendons/ligaments/bones need much longer to prepare for hard work.

The most muscle fitness is achieved by walking and trotting. 5 minute trot sets are very effective when intersperced with 5 minute walk sets. Every 5th workout, add 3 minutes onto the trot set until you're trotting for 25 minutes.

If he was very fit before the winter, you could probably bring him back in about 4-5 weeks. If he wasn't very fit, he'd probably need 6-7 weeks.

If he was fit: Only walk and trot for the first 2 weeks, building trot sets gradually. Third week, add in a little canter and increase trots. Fourth week, extend canters and trots as appropriate for the horse. After this, your horse will have a solid baseline of fitness, from here you can further condition him for events.
