Training schedule for chance??? Ideas??

Hey appy Im going to steal you idea :P But unlike you I have ONE horse :P

I've decided to work with chance but like I said in my "I've eatten dirt for the last time." I need you help!

For those who don't know chance: she's a 5 yr old appaloosa/Tb mare. Before I got her she was a pasture ordiment abused starved ect. I worked her for about 5 months straight groundwork/ riding then she had two-three months off due to both an injury to her and me. During those 2-3 months we did all ground work. So now as of last month we are getting back into work and hopeing to get back where we were last summer. [ those amount of months are estiments]

No more ground work I swear we've done all we can! Its under saddle we need help!

If you look in the critique section theres a recent video of me riding chance.

These are the things we work on.

-Having a nice working/spingy walk --- not lazy and dull.
-trot we are trying to keep it calm and SOMEWHAT collected. - not all strung out.
- Canter we accually just started to canter again so I havent done any work on it.
-Jumping .. right now we are going back down to trot poles and small cross rails and learn to use her body not so much speed.
- we are also working on a lot of patterns and getting her to work of my leg rather then reins.

Okay now.. for your part :P

I need a good Training schedule. The days I go up to the barn is Sat. Sun. Tues. Thurs. I've made it tuesdays to be her day off for just loveing ect.

Any tips on what else I could work on with her.. and how to acheive some of the things in the list above ect. :)

Hope you guys can help!

My first suggestion is that you work at the walk until you get that right before moving to the trot before moving to the canter. I would leave the jumping til very last. I also would not give her that extra day off, I mean she already has Mon, Wed, and Fri off. If you want time to connect with her and love on her, do it from the saddle. If you have the area, lots of trail riding will assist in keeping her alert and developing her working long walk. Also, it works great if you have some deadfall to ride through (nothing too extreme though) because that will help teach her to be aware of where her feet are and that will make her more concious of her feet during other work. Also, if she has only been ridden for about 5 months total in her life, then she is still a pretty green horse. Lots of miles over different terrain will give her experience in just being ridden. During the trot, just try to keep it at the pace that you want. Young horses sometimes tend to get strung out in their gates and just have to be worked through it. If she starts going too fast, then signal her to slow and then release the pressure. One of the things that I do on my young horses to teach them to rate and also be aware of me at all times is something I do on the trail on the way home. I will ask them for a slow trot. If they change the gait in any way such as speeding up, I will stop them and make them stand for a couple of seconds or maybe back a couple of steps. Then we will start home and again I will ask for a slow trot and repeat the entire process. This will help them learn to be aware of what you are doing at all times and teach them to move "with their brakes on". This will also help to keep their head down and their movement calm. When they get a bit older, I also work on that at the lope.

Thanks smrobs i'll keep that in mind! Did you post this before or after the video?? If before do you have any other ideas / tips after seeing her in action??

I've had her for 9 months and yea she was ridden about 5-6 months all together with me before she came to me she was a pasture pet for 1-2 years. Was a lesson horse for a week before that but it ever worked out lol.


ALso everyone who cares to help watch the video in the 'Me Riding Chance WESTERN" post!! First :)
