Showjumpkid4eva: Deb2: It does not really matter what her height is, all horses need feeding accurately. Also, you mention in a previous post that you cant pony her out because your riding horse is in 'competition work' and therefore schooled 90% of the time. Can I just suggest that you might be overdoing it if you are schooling him 90% of all his riding times. Also, it is very possible to inject some schooling into a ride out, and every ride should be considered part of the training of the horse. If they do something not correct, you as the rider correct them....that is training. You can practice canter departures, collection, moving off the leg etc out on the trail, and it can certainly save any horse's sanity. At the level that you are competing at, I think you are over thinking the schooling plan....dont forget to make it fun for yourself and your horse.
