Continued training on my 3 yo

My 3yo Tenn. Walker is at the trainer for 30 days. My question is: knowing that 30 days of training isnt much what should I do when I get her back to continue to help her become a great trail horse. I not an expert rider but I do have some experience working with horses on ground manners etc...
Thanks in advance.

This is something you should be asking the trainer. You should have a plan for continuing his education on being ridden or how to behave on the ground.
waresbear and oh vair oh like this.

I will definitly be discussing it with the trainer but just wanted to put it out there before I do to get some input to use in conjunction with his advice.

Ride her often - everyday if possible. Even if you can only squeeze in 15 minutes on some days...ride.

There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.

Ask your trainer about flexing exercises, bending exercises, two tracking, hind quarters out, & in, shoulders out & in, that is a start and you can do it on the trail if your horse gets nervous,

First, you have to decide what you want to do with your horse. You are a trainer when you ride a horse, whether you want to be or not. Training for the show ring, or for sport competition is a lot different than training for the trail. If you just want a horse to enjoy, then simple trail riding is great training. Even a trail horse, however, benefits from arena training to become a well-rounded riding horse, but in my opinion, the best training for a pleasure horse is miles and miles of trails.
