I have a dressage and jumping pony and I want to start conditioning her for cross country. What plans have worked for you and what do you recommend ? I have access to trails. :)

I'd say start working it up and down hills to increase strength and also start training as you would for sj in the feild so he gets used to working in the feikd
Try a lot of trotting over rolling hills, start with shorter distances and gradually work up to longer distances. When you feel like your pony is ready, try cantering along trails for gradually longer stretches. Hope this helps:)
