    Devised a training schedule for my first endurance ride in April, please comment as I have no idea if it's good or not !

    Monday - regular 1 hour private lesson, jumping and schooling
    Tuesday - flat/pole work, hack and jumping
    Wednesday - hacking with uphill/ground work 2 hours
    Thursday - schooling, flatwork
    Friday - private jumping lesson + countryside hack
    Saturday - roadwork, schooling and jumping
    Sunday - all day hack + schooling

    Is this overworking or ok? Thanx

    Rest is just as important to conditioning as trotting and exercise are! There needs to be one day off a week in any training program, for both you and the horse. Otherwise you're setting yourself and your horse up for an overuse or strain type injury.

    I would have lessons for desentizing as well from saddle and ground. Not sure if your guy is used to new things but you want to make sure he/she can handle anything you throw at them ;)

    I also add in stops with hacks over 2-3 hours . Make sure they keep eating and drinking (whatever is on the trail like grass or a creek etc..) at the stop points every once in a while I will practice a vet exam stop. (stop horse untack. Touch him everywhere like a vet. Make him w/t out on lead line, etc) that way they will be used to ppl comeing over and touching him after a long ride and will still work for you. If you have a few freinds that could help with that it makes a world of difference. Like 2-3 ppl go over and touch him while your at his head etc..

    Just make sure you both (horse and rider) are having fun!!
