My standardbred had a saddle/harness(was going to race)on her as a early 3 year old and had a break to mature but now I have bought her I let her rest more and just did groundwork with her over winter and trying her with a saddle and that,
She is just a month and a half away from being four and owning her for 6 months I see and feel she is mentally/body wise ready for gentle backing and I tried sitting on her for the first time a week ago and she was totally relaxed but I don`t want to rush her.
MY question is once I have began sitting on her and starting to ride/train her how many times a week do I ride her and how long for? As I don`t want to rush her but I don`t want to stop her education by going far too slow.
Any advice would be helpful
