Let's Make Every Ride Great
Today's Riding Plan for You and Your Horse...
"So, what are you planning on doing today?". It's a question I ask at least 5 or 6 times a week to different riders. And, let's be honest here, so often the answer is not all that great! "I'm not sure. We'll see when we start working." If that's you right regarding your next ride with your horse, I am giving you 'the look'! The look I reserve for riders who say they want to achieve and do all of the things... But they continue to wing it when it comes to their training and their responsibilities as the trainer for their horse.
So, rather than just moan, I am going to give you a step-by-step riding plan today that you can follow so you can truly make the most of your next ride with your horse :)

What is 'Doing It' for You and Your Horse This Year?
It's always the same. The same sentences are being spoken and written about the same things. And I've been thinking about why it is this way. Why do most riders make the same 'resolutions' year in and year out? Rather than growing, building, and developing so that they get to create something different each year they are together?
How about this year, you try something different for you and your horse? Something that you can feel a sense of accomplishment about?
Commit to 'Doing It'... Now, I get that 'doing it' is fairly vague! It's one of those phrases that can mean anything to anyone. And this is where the magic lives. It is as individual and unique as you and your horse are when working together. Which allows you to make it anything that you want it to be.
I am going to suggest that from today, you begin to think about what 'doing it' is for you and your horse.
Start with thinking about what 'being an equestrian' means for you. Does it mean a deeper connection with your horse? Perhaps it is with horses in general. Maybe it is riding skills and training skills that really define an equestrian for you. Or the number of hours spent with horses on a weekly basis...

Making the Most of Time with Your Horse
There are certain times of the year when circumstances mean you can find yourself with either more or less time with your horse. December, August, and April are just a few that pop into my mind. Some riders find they have more time, and other riders have significantly less! It just depends on your unique circumstances and situation.
What is key to remember is that whatever side of the time conundrum you find yourself on, making the time with your horse count is important. Especially if you hope to continue to move forward in your training together. Can you really afford to lose a month of training - and set your momentum back to zero?
So, to help you get this all figured out and continue to grow and develop your skills as a rider, here are a few ideas on how you can make the most of your time with your horse. However much time that happens to be for you.

Safely Including Jumping in Your Horse's Training
Whether you enjoy jumping or not, the fact of the matter remains... When approached correctly and consistently, jumping can significantly benefit horses and riders in a long-term training program even if there is no intention of actually 'jumping' competitively. And this is true regardless of discipline, training level, and experience.
When introduced the right way, and then strategically used jumping is a great way to add diversity to the training - and physically and mentally develop the team.
So, here are three simple ways you can get started and begin using jumping this week in your current training program with your horse. And, keep in mind, nothing has to be 'higher' or 'bigger' than 30cm (12 inches), deal? ;)

3 Mistakes when Purchasing an Online Horse Program...
There are times each year when special offers are just an inevitable part of life. Right now is one of those times; I can only imagine how, right now, your inbox is full, full, full, with all of the things! And some of those things, online horse programs, are just so, well, darn good... Right?
Hmmm... Maybe too good?!
I think that most of us would agree that knowing how to discern 'all of the things' when it comes to online horse programs and courses can be a bit of a fine art. Particularly when you're not an expert on the topic of the course or program you're interested in, maybe, investing in. And this is true for most of us. After all, we are not going to spend time and money on knowledge or training on things we already are well versed in!
So, in the hope that I can help you a little with all of the decisions regarding what's 'right' for you and your horse... Here's a quick rundown of the 3 common mistakes I see riders make.

3 Lunging Exercises to Train Your Horse
As a rider, it is important to always look for ways to keep your schooling work interesting; for you and your horse. One of the ways you can do this is by working on different lunging exercises. And they don't have to be 'fancy' or complex.
In fact, there are a few basic exercises you can begin working on introducing, or refining today that will help you to really begin utilizing lunging as a training tool for you and your horse.
Now, just like riding, it is important that before you dive into 'working' your horse, you take the time to warm up correctly. I enjoy walking my horse (leading my horse) the 'long way round' to the arena I will be working in. I use the 5 or so minutes to do a little groundwork on the way.
And bonus points if the groundwork sets up, introduces, or relates to what you will actually be working on when lunging your horse. It is the perfect way to start the conversation.
