    I've heard a lot of people say bending/sidepassing. I know what sidepassing is, but what is bending? Thanks!

    Litteraly getting the horse to bend, so serpintines, circles, changes of rein, changing the horses bend!

    I personaly start on a long rein in walk and encourage him to lift his back and come into my hands (still on a long rein) we do some bending and stretching to get him working through and long, then we do some trotting on a long rein and some bending.
    I'll then drop back to walk, bring him up into a higher contact (shorter rein) and ask him to do some bending, turns on the forehand, tourns on the hind. Then into trot on the shorter contact and again lots of bending, some leg yielding, lots and lots of transitions, half halts to pop him back on his botty a bit more.

    He realy isnt ready for much canter work yet (mentaly, physically he is more than ready) so if we do canter it is just one or 2 transitions on each rein to make sure we can strike off on the correct leg.

    Then he is ready for competition, however I do start schooling ponies the moment I sit on them, warming up is always part of the schooling plan, but you can school and warm up at the same time.

    Sometimes if the pony is just not in the mood for working in the school I will take him for a 15 min hack to warm him up and get them settled mentaly and then start schooling in the school. Or a lot of the time I will school out on hacks.

    I like to walk maybe 1/4 of a mile then trot 1/4 a mile to 1/2 mile then ill start working them. Or if it is just a fun day where we are just working on getting in shape we may trot for a few miles up and down hills then walk for a cool down.
