After not riding for a week
I'm leaving for Florida Saturday, and (obviously) Rainy will be left up here. Well, I mentioned it to my friend who actually enjoys (or rather, isn't bothered by) riding Rainy, and she was apologetic, but knew she wouldn't be able to come out very often during the next week. The other girls who might be able to ride her more often have informed me that they are less than enthusiastic about riding her, and so, she'll have to be without work for a week. Does anyone have suggestions as to what to do when I come back? Getting on right away sounds like a terrible idea to me, so I was thinking lunging (w/t to start off, then adding in some ground poles and a 6 in cavaletti) to get out some of her energy, and then doing lots of circle work, serpentines, and such, bending and flexing, and then a trail ride to cool down if the weather's nice. Does that sound like a good plan, or is there something else I should do?
