So I'm starting to get Ollie out on the trails more, instead of just loose rein and just enjoying the view I'm asking him to work. I really am focusing on getting him in the best fitness I can for spring.
I have only gone on one working trail ride. This was when our arena froze over lol we did some trot work, he was reallynot sure why he was being asked to trot on the trail,mnot only trot but coming through from behind and into the bit. Had a few relaxed strides....lol but allot of it was tense and me reassuring him.
So we have some trails with long driveways, small hills, one big hill, twisty turns and such....what awesome things I can incorporate in our working trail rides besides just trotting correctly?
Would love some thoughts on this :)
