You are wanting to figure out a good schedule between doing groundwork with your horse, and riding? Why not ground work before you ride? :)

i mix mine up alot. I don't have an indoor so I anytime the weather is good I'm out there riding.

Everytime I lead my horse, I work on ground manners. When he is tied up I make sure he will move off pressure and so on. I usually practice showmanship either before or after I ride as well.

If I havn't ridden in a while or there was a weather change and my horse is feeling frisky, then I will longe him.

I pretty much compete at all events at open shows so I have alot of stuff to practice.

I don't practice speed very much because I don't want my horse to get all hot. I try to practice Western and English atleast once a week. Everyonce in while I will throw together a trail class for him. I also try to take him on a trail ride once a week to give him a break from the arena.

I do alot of pattern work. I think that keeps him fresh and really shows where your flaws are. I try not to ride on the rail very much.

Every once in a while, I practice some Dressage. I think that puts a great foundation on any horse.

I have a similar question my horses are in pasture condition one has been off for about 3 years and the other just through the winter I ride once or twice a week until the weather gets better so my question is how long should I lunge them on days I do not ride to try to get them in shape

unfortunately i really only ride saturdays and sundays during the winter
BUt luckily in spring and all i can ride at least 3 days a week.
Luckily my horse is naturally fairly athletic, otherwise, he would definitely not be in shape for this stuff ya know
But usually i like to give a really good work out on saturday, then work on specifics sunday be it EQ or anything else, and then the middle week day its a review of the weekend. it works pretty well for me so far
