Yes Vashti, i will hv 2 clinics in June and 1 in July in Ontario this year :)
thank you for the detailed response! I could not agree more about asking a young horse to do something that will break their confidence.
Will you be doing any clinics in Ontario, Canada this year?
Most important thing with young horses for me is never asking them to do something too complicated , something they are not ready for and breaking their confidence or heart
The routine for 4-5 years old i do is :
Day 1 longe morning , flat work afternoon (half hlat- transitions )
Day 2 longe morning simple line poles on the ground afternoon
Day 3 walker or paddock morning and flat afternoon ( response to leg with simple lateral movements)
Day 4 longe or paddock morning ,simple jumps afternoon
Day 5 paddock morning , flat afternoon ( mixed of 2 first flat works)
Day 6 walker or paddock morning and small easy course or gymnastic in the afternoon
