I really curious to hear opinion what you do with the horse and for how long when having a "training session" (simply, the ride ). Lessons are OK to discuss to. I mean what kind of exercises you do, when, for how long, etc.
I'm interested, because my lesson is VERY different from what I usually do when I ride myself. During a lesson, after some walk there is a short trot (like 5 mins only if so) and then canter, and then whatever else we work on (like lateral movement today). My horse is not used to it as my schedule is very different (I always canter in the end of the ride after lots of trot, poles/cavaletti work, transitions, etc.), and she's getting over-excited with canter coming too soon (yes, I know, not good). So I wonder how do you work with your horse?
