Endurance Training Without Leaving the Yard๐Ÿ‡๐Ÿ’จย 


I wish every ride was as nice as tonight’s endurance training with Popgun.๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿ”ซ๐Ÿฆ„๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ช

 We made the most out of a long and otherwise boring day by riding 16.4 km in 1 hour and 45 minutes, despite barely leaving the yard and walking a total of 40 minutes. ๐Ÿšœ ๐ŸŒพ

The ground was perfect on the path around the big field (800 meters) and in the summer pasture (300 meters) and we could train completely undisturbed at a nice and even pace. All the joys of a racetrack just outside the stable doors. ๐Ÿ‡๐Ÿ’จ๐ŸŒพ๐Ÿ๐ŸŒ™๐Ÿ’ซ๐Ÿ™

Popgun was wearing our new saddle in navy, Royal blue and Gold from Exclusive Horsewear. It looked smashing and matched  the blue biothane bridle perfectly. 

Our ride in detail:

  • Walking 20 minutes (100 meters + 800 meters * 2 = 1.7 km)  
  • Trotting 2 big laps in both directions (800 meters *4 laps = 3.2 km)  
  • Cantering 5 small laps clockwise (300 meters * 5 laps = 1.5 km in 5 minutes) 
  • Trotting 1 small lap clockwise (300 meters * 1 lap) 
  • Cantering 5 small laps counter-clockwise (300 meters * 5 laps = 1.5 km in 5 minutes) 
  • Trotting 1 small lap counter-clockwise (300 meters * 1 lap) 
  • Cantering 2 big laps counter-clockwise (800 meters * 2 laps = 1.6 km)
