My friend who is riding Third Level tells me she makes a half halt every stride in the canter. Should I be doing that with my horse?
(“Y’all just take little steps!”)

(“Presto you’re an FEI rider!”)

I ride my guy 6 days a week. Mostly work though maybe a day of long/low walking easy stuff. I make myself wear jeans on the ‘7th’ day to discourage myself from riding that day. I love riding him though he can be a challenge. Would 7 days be too much?
