Wow, those are great guys :)
I'm thinking about asking my trainer if I can run around the cross country field(obviously without jumping) because we don't have any trails at the barn where I ride. My fellow Jr. Team member took her horse out there yesterday and just ran around without the BO/trainer, so I guess it would be okay as long as I asked and didn't jump(she doesn't let people use the XC jumps without her there for liability reasons, and I totally understand). I REALLY want to go on a trail ride with Pyro but our trailer was too small(we sold it but used the money to paid overdue bills instead of on a new trailer :/) and my trainer charges ridiculous amounts of money to trailer you somewhere. Sorry, I'm rambling xD
Do any of you do lounge work? I remember reading some sort of condition packet my trainer gave me for Rio and it said that you shouldn't even ride for the first few weeks, just lounge.
