yes, this is true. Sorry.
For the past year (i bought him in February of last year) I have not missed more than a week without riding him. Three days is a long time for me not to ride. So I am with him 4-6 days a week. I started him with general ring work, walk trot canter, ground poles, low jumps, lots of trail riding and lunging. Just to feel him out.
However, sense I moved him closer to me in July, he now gets at LEAST an hour of work like I said 4-6 days a week, for the past 8 months. Lots of lunging extended trot. When I ride him, I ride with a goal, no dilly dallying. Once again lots of trotting, some cantering. I currently am getting ready for show season barrel racing. It will be our first season. I looked up some exercises for that as well as some routines from fellow barrels friends. So I do lots of barrel work walk/ trot , bending and doing some square patterns with barrels. Trot/ canter with rollbacks, tons of circles small and big.
Unfortunately there are no hills in my area :/ so I can't do incline work with him....
That's generally it, so whats the verdict ? Anything else I can do ?
