[RC] need a little help... conditioning Question - Diana Peterson

Hi everybody

My 9 yar old arab gelding and me want to do our first 50 mile ride at the Freeze R Burn ride .

I have conditioned him for about a year now. I have done Parelli on him we are finishing up level 2.

I ride him during the week ....once or twice duing trotting and some cantering. for maybe 3 to five miles...
Then on the weekends we do 20 to 25 miles .... mostly at the Grasslands and the Greenbelt from 428 to Lantana in Pilot Point . The riders around Denton Tx. will know what trails i am talkeing about...

What do i need to do to get him ready for our first 50... we have the feeding for him and me figured out... he eats and drinks great. Our electrolyte regimen is good too. I have found the foods i can eat and I have found my kind of electolytes that work for me....

So how do i figure out if we are ready ?? The ride is Feb 10 .

My problem is during the week i can't ride that long. just for maybe an hour here and there.... is the weekend conditioning enough ??

We are doing a 5 to 7 mile trott right now....wich is comfortable for me and him . We just want to finish :-)



I will not be able to get back on the computer till tonight. All help appreciated Thanks :-)
