Trot sets, hacking, lunging
@saratruax I only ride her once everyone other week and sometimes in lessons ?? And I'm the only one who rides her
So work with her a little more everyday for example 1st day work about 20-24 mins and then the 2nd day work for about 30-35 mins and then just keep going from there adding a few more mins every time you ride.I had this problem before so I hope this helps
It wouldn't take any longer than 40mins :)
@georgiabuchan I only get to ride her every other week for 40 minutes. Can this be down even though this is the only time I can ride her
To get my eventer fit I do interval training. If you look it up it comes up with the amount of time you do it for :)
