Spring is a favorite time for trail riding. Start conditioning your horse now so you can enjoy the season.

Consistency helps when it comes to training. Doing 3-4 workouts a week will condition your horse better than one hard ride once a week.

Trotting is the ultimate conditioning gait. Trotting is great exercise for both the horse and the riders.

Incorporate hill work into your training schedule. Hill work conditions. Once a twice a week is recommended.

Good luck.
