Day 44: Typical Training Ride with Solar

Horse cantering in the woods

Featured below is video footage from an “average” training ride with Solar, narrated to explain what we are doing. Lately we’ve been starting our rides with a brief trail ride and some hillwork. In the video we work on counter-bending, moving the shoulders, establishing rhythm and relaxation, and transitions. We also experiment to see if Solar remembers how to do flying changes from his racing days. Nothing too fancy but hopefully educational!

If you have any questions please feel free to leave a comment below.
