I work my horses a good 5 days per week. An easy day is just walk and trot around the field for 1/2 an hour then a little cantering followed by some cooling down. We will practice rollbacks, spins and transitions.
A heavy day may be a 5 hour trail ride through woods, across streams and bridges, with some trotting and cantering up some hills. It may also be 1/2 an hour working cattle (after a good warm up)
I finish my rides with some easy walks on the buckle and a hosing off.
So I don't think you are working your horse enough!! LOL
I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.
Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
It's not always what you say but what they hear.
