Microtek works well on rain rot, fyi.
We are planning to compete Cowboy in Hunter Jumpers. But we will likely never be doing any sort of ... canter an entire course every single day untill you sweat buckets. More like, jump some singles and lines pretty regularly, maybe 4 times a week? And courses a few days a week when conditioning for an upcoming show. This scheduale would be for when he is 6+. Right now he is 4, and we only jump once or twice a week, with flat in between, and yes, the work is light. He doesn't have the heavy breath at all. In fact, I've only heard that he does it, never experienced it.

No, only jump 2 times a week, 3 at max, no matter what his age. Jumping any more than that regularly can be too strenuous.

My mare is 10 and I still only jump about twice a week.
