I have 2 to get going on again as soon as the weather starts getting better. All I have is a outdoor grass ring (and live in Upstate NY). Its a little difficult to get much done at this time of year
My Appy is going to be 4 this spring, all we have done to date is walk/Trot work. Time to get serious with her. I have actually thought about sending her out for 30 days, I don't ride enough in the winter to maintain good balance and if she does something goofy I get paranoid about falling off.
I have to get Molly going to (Morgan/Percheron cross). She coming 3 yrs old. Shes had the saddle on (without being girthed) , she bucked like a rodeo horse when I put the training sercingle (SP?) on her and it wasn't even tight. The good thing about Molly is once the initial "fuss" is over, she ususally settles down for the next time.
