I am usually all about short sessions, but I am wondering if people find a great benefit to longer sessions. I ask because today I got on a horse that's big goals for last summer were to stop rearing when I got on, establishing a stop and to not duck and weave in the corner of the yard where the path to the riding arena is. Today, after a few months not being under-saddle I got on and he was good. He walked a little when I got on but that's an easy enough fix. He showed interest in going down the path to the riding area. I had him stop (a challenge for him) and got off him. Then he went and got dinner. I am just feeling like I could have pushed farther and I am wondering if maybe I should amend my short session strategy. If the horse does what I want in the first ten minutes of a ride then the ride is ten minutes if it takes sixty minutes then we ride for sixty minutes. Either way the reward (me getting off and leaving him alone) comes only after he does what I want. What do other people do? What do you think the benefits are? What are the cons? How do you know when enough is a enough?
