    Help with my training schedule.

    So I have kind of a weird schedule. I go to work tuesday through saturday 11am-9pm and sunday from 12pm-8pm. Mondays I have free. Saturday mornings I can prob go in late, and same with sundays. The barn is only open 10am-10pm 7 days a week. So I am trying to figure out a training schedule to be more consistent in Thunder's training. What I do now is go in about 30min- an hour at a time maybe 3 days a week. We just tune up on little things. I want to actually have a training schedule so I can see some progress. Would it be better for me to go out there and spend 2-3 hours with him (with breaks of course) only 2-3 days a week as opposed to 30min-1hr 3-4 times a week??

    Sorry if this is confusing, im just trying to get him really going on things.

    Ok so let me refrain the it better to spend longer amounts of time working then short intervals?

    I think it might be better to go up to see him more and work for less, rather than going up less and working more.

    It's kind of hard to say. There are times that a short session is more benefital then a longer working session. You never want to quit working your horse on a bad note so have good judgement on what you are working on depending on the amount of time you have. There have been plenty of times that a quick hack turned into long training sessions.

    Thanks guys....i guess I was just trying to get a feel if other ppl that are training out there are on a strict schedule or if they just go out and do what they can when they can. I guess it's a bit of both, but I just don't know what's more successful.

    I'd rather do the more frequent sessions for less time... Aim for riding/training for 45 mins.... that still gives a loy of time to work with your horse, and allows you that extra 15mins if you need it.
    I normally work my horses for 30mins but that's because I have a knee injury and I'm still trying to build my strength up so I can handle more.
