Bloss is schooled 5 nights a week in the winter on the school (weather permitting) as i dont get to the yard until its dark. In summer its 4 times a week, hacked out twice and competed once - if not competing then day off. In winter she'l get hacked on one day of the weekend and jumped on the other if not competing.

I school 3/4 times a week and hack out the remaining times. However, the past month or so we have had a 'back to basics' regime as she was getting a little unpredicatable so we haven't done any road hacking, just across the stubble fields. Tomorrow we go out on the roads again, so fingers crossed!

I school at least 3 times a week but intersperse that with lunging and pole-work, I also hack 2-3 times a week also, but this will change to just weekend days as the nights draw in

Spring is currently being lunged every morning and ridden every evening at the moment as they have just moved fields and she is looking a little rotund!

In winter I school 4-5 nights (intermingled with a jumping session) a week as I come after work so it's normally very dark.

In summer I school 3-4 times a week, normally jump once a week and hack 1/2 times a week depending on whether I'm competing or not. If I compete then he normally gets a day off after.

On average, school on the flat three times a week, hack twice a week, one day off & a day competing. Sometimes may have a jumping lesson though or two days competing. I dont school the older horses as much though & more hacking.

I only go into the shool once a week, sometimes if he feels chilled I will do some circles in the field on a hack. I do transitions, rein back, tunns on forehand/haunches and leg yielding on hacks though, and hack 3 times per week. I jump twice a week and he has a day off each week too.

I don't have access to a school without boxing and I work so don't have time to box during the week. So I hack all the time but do try to do some schooling on hack, even at a basic level. We do transitions, leg yielding, different paces of trot etc.

It's hte only thing I could do with Baron - he was unbelievably green on the flat for a 9yr old and there was no way in hell I was going to jump him

So normally twice or 3 days a week

Work oshka in there 2 or three times a week. Willow and Murph are more difficult, about once every fortnight, because I just dont have facilities down there, and fields are only good for a certain part of the year. At the moment I am working Daisy and Eric almost every day.
