Do you have any advices to help regain ankle muscles needed for horse riding ? Any tips for coming back after injuries ?
Coming back after injuries, the best thing to do is to start off easy don't push yourself too much so that you have to wait longer to get back to where you were. Feel better!!
Any good jumping exercises so my horse doesn't rush to fences?
An excercise that you could do is set up a jump on the diagonal. Then start making trotting circles, when you get in line with the jump go to it but continue your circle before you get to the jump. Then work your way to doing this at the canter. You can definitely mix this up and jump it once in a while and have mixed patterns so your horse doesn't catch on with the pattern. We had to use this with a horse I have ridden and it has helped. Another thing that helps is just sitting back and waiting for the jump to come to you. Hope this helps!
Do you havne any tips to get a horse up to canter without trotting faster and loosing control ?
Transitions from the walk to canter always help me with this. If she still doesn't pick up her canter bring her back down to a walk and try it over again. I would also suggest that next time as you are cantering praise her and tell her she's doing it right. Hope this helps!
