So, I've not been riding my horses as much this winter with school and all, and the weather isn't helping. I try to get out as much as possible but I'm not keeping them in well enough condition, and they haven't been worked in a few weeks.
I'm afraid that once show season starts, they won't be ready to hit hard and really give it their all, and we have a select few show opportunities.
As the title states, they are a reining cowhorses. I'd love to take them out to the flag and cattle as often as possible but I just can't anymore.
Is there something else I can do to keep them fit? Someone suggested extended periods of trotting. Woul that work? I've never really had this problem before.
