Ask @alexzetterman : What is a typical day at a show like for you? How do you get ready (flat work in the morning, stretching etc..)? Thank you :)

Hi Norman,

I do some flatwork sometimes in the morning depending on which horse. Otherwise the grooms will hand walk the horses in the morning. I like to stretch a bit myself before I get on my first horse. When I get on the horse I try to give myself 10-15 min to just walk the horse before I do canter work. And then I spend some time studying other horses and riders in between my rounds.

Alex.
