My pony is kept outside as well and as she runs all day probably doesn't need a long warm up but like I said the trotting is very good for horses. I don't canter until about an hour into a warm-up.

sorry, but your horse does not need an hour of walk and trot to warm up !

i do w/t/c on a loose rein, not asking much. then i do bending, smaller circles, on the bit, lead changes, jumping, etc. i think theres no use in trying to get them to jump or go on the bit unless you have free forward movement firmly established at all gaits.

Train however you choose, I just choose to have an unbreakable bond with my horses. Besides spending like 2 hours per session with my horse I spend hours and hours grooming and walking around with her after a workout!

I start by walking the horse around(usually along the roads or something) for about 10 minutes, and then I usually do some bending and transitions and such in walk, trot and sometimes canter before beginning the real work. My main focus is getting the horse warm enough, loose and concentrated.

I'll usually let them have thier head, and practice my 2-point untill I'm sore. Then I'll just relax for a bit, tightening the contact. Then I'll practice 2-point in the trot untill sore. Then walk just a little while, then we do circles, serpintines, etc. to keep the mind busy at the w/t/c. Once we are fully ready and flexible, we either just focus on flat, or 2 days of the week, jump

I brush my horse down, put on the saddle, throw a leg over the saddle and start riding. That's all the warm up he gets.

Depends on the horse for me...

Grace - lunge for a while, really until she is sane....one I get on her we walk for like 10 minutes, doing a lot of bending, circles, leg yields. Then trot doing same exercises, add.some ground poles. I trot until she is ready to canter, never a set time.

Sheena Bean - walk for about 15 minutes ( she is 18 so I like to give her.longer to stretch.) all around the property. Before I am ready to trot, I stop and flex her to my toe a few times. Trot, working on her being chill. She has headshaking syndrome so she is very tense. Do some long & low. I don't always canter her depending on how bad her headshakng is that day...it just makes all of the trot work I did go away... At the end of every ride, we gallop up the hill. Makes her very happy!
