This is my only horse and she has been under saddle for about 9 months, she
has just turned 5. Prior to my getting her she was a pasture queen in WA.
She is 7/8 Arab about 15h with a deep chest and short neck, I'm 5'10" and
170lbs and my saddle weights 20lbs. Is this enough info?
I would like to enter into a 25 miler this year if we could get it done at
our current mph. My intent is to get her adjusted to groups of horses and
riders. It's hard to find bad habits and fix'em if there are no triggers.
I have read about LSD, IT, aerobitc and anaerobic conditioning but I don't
know if we have enough of a base on yet for it to even matter. Great
information but for later I'm thinking. Wanting to go, go, go but will not
damage my mare due to impatience.
