[RC] newbie/how to begin conditioning horse - Ridecamp Guest

Please Reply to: margie preston Libertypreston@xxxxxxxxxxx or 

i am new at this and was wondering if i am doing this right.
i have a 4 year old who may have stood in a pen for past 6 months.So i have 
started by just walking 7 miles one day then the next day i give her off,third 
day i lunge her in sand about 4 inches deep i usually walk her ten minutes each 
way then trot briskly each way let her walk another five minutes each way then 
canter a few minutes each way then i just take her out and hand walk her in the 
nieghborhood(so she can get use to the traffic,i can walk for excercise)for 
about 2 miles.then i repeat everything above ride one day,rest one 
day,lunge/walk one day and so on.
