I've just returned to riding. My mare is 21 years old. She's not been ridden in 10 years. We are now committed to riding twice a week, Wednesday and Sunday.
I'm wondering what kind of things we could work on so we don't become bored?
I don't have access to trails. I ride in a large field (about 5-6 acres) I don't have a ring.
Would like to know the kinds of things you work on throughout the week, so I have some different exercises to work on.
We ride western for the most part, but I've ridden and jumped in the past (a long time ago... in a galaxy far far away LOL).
Right now we are working on walking (she's slow and lazy, I am trying to get her to pick up the walk and move out a bit). Trotting (she's too fast... I'm working on getting her lovely little jog back). Doing circles and bending exercises. And we just cantered for the first time our last ride.
