Warm-up routine for schooling?
I've got a new horse I'm looking after once per week and there's a very very large sand school on site (YAY!)
I'd say I'm a higher level novice, so I wouldn't really be teaching the horse anything new, just improving my riding, control, and feeling the horse.
I love schooling, but I've never been taught any kind of particular warm-up.
He's a stocky little 13.3 new forest, 18 years old. I want to help him stay supple and have good stamina.
What would you recommend for a warm-up?
His owner said I can school him for around an hour so could you help me accommodate a warm-up to this?
What would you do different for warm/mild/cold/really cold weather?
To ride or not to ride? ... What a stupid question!!
