We're lucky in that we have a great trail just down the street, and we ride out to that quite often. Samson gets lots of trail riding fun, our favorite is to go down to Hocking Hills in southern Ohio. Hacking is how I grew up, and this ring work is what is new.
MI, how do you work on bend and turns out hacking? In a field? On curvy trails? And, do you count riding out around the farm as hacking? Or specifically trails?
We hop over a couple of fences a couple of times a week, and work on the flat the rest.
I just want to build up more muscle so he is in better shape after a XC course. We don't have a lot of hills right here by the farm..so lots of trot work? Canter work? Just hours in the saddle?
I like like changing it up like you said Puck. Especially around here you can never predict the weather, let alone everything else.
I just want to make sure we're getting the most out of each workout.
Thank Hayley, i'll check out those issues. I really like Jim's articles. I think I still have those issues somewhere around here.
