My 5 year old had had afew weeks of hacking quite abit recently, but kept losing shoes so we'd have to give him some days off untill they were put back on!

So tonight im going to school him, and get us back on track, as hes getting a grass belly from living out. (He adores being out 24-7, and his jumps gone from strength to strengh!

So exercise, things to work on to make me feel like time has flown by when i school tonight please!! Outline might need to ecouragement after being a happy hacker! lol!

Thanks.

I'm exactly the same. I school for ages and then look at my watch and find I've only been on for 15 minutes! I find it easier when I've got a dressage test coming up then I can practise going down the centre line, serpentines etc.

How about picking two points in the school and seeing how many strides you canter inbetween and then add a stride or take a stride out. This will help your jumping too in theory?!

I wait with baited breath for lots of ideas!
