Hello Katie,

To minimize recovery, I advise you to finish an intense workout by progressively going back to walk, while trying to relax your horse with a round walk, nose on the ground.

The day after, you can just lunge him, nose on the ground, or ride him to stretch him, it has to be a quick and chill session (20 min).
