Making a plan for Winter.

Now that I'm closer to the barn, I'm trying to figure out a 'training' program for Max that will stay interesting for both him and myself through the winter months.

Here is a rough breakdown for now:

Monday nights: Dressage or Pole work/Cavalettis

Tuesday nights: Dressage or Bareback

Wednesday nights: Dressage lessons (when they come up)

Thursday nights: Pole work or Small jumps - OR a jumping lesson

Saturday and Sundays: Short ring work, and then we move on outside! Trail rides, confidence training, water training..whatever we can accomplish out doors while the weather stays nice.

Alternate Saturdays and Sundays:

Saturday: Bareback or Dressage

Sunday: Jumping/ Pole work

I'm curious how closely I'll stick to this plan, but I'm going to try very hard to. This way by spring, if all goes well, Max and I will be stronger, fitter and ready for more challenging adventures!
