Trailer to a indoor arena if you want to go full out. You could just work on flexibility and such, by doing tight circles at the walk and trot.

Yeah, I had to quit ANY work with actual barrels about a month ago to to frozen mud/snow. I am working on getting my mare to use her hind end, improve her rate and get her soft and supple. I'd do that until you have better ground.

The only difference between cowgirls and angels is cowgirls can ride better.

Try just leading him/her around and up and down ditches if they aren't too icy. Just getting a good workout is super important. Your horse needs to be fit. Also flex. He/she doesn't have to go anywhere when you flex them. They just stand there and bend their neck.

Can Shoot Me Down, But I Won't Fall. I am Titanium

Run and hide, but we will find you. Our legacies, they live in our blood. Forever we will win these battles. We are smarter, faster, stronger.

I could never live without the strength of you by my side. You are my strength, my quickness, and my heart.

I will love you forever because love is the only thing in this world that is forever other than death, and true love goes to the grave.

Of course I believe in true love. I have you.

Yea I'm working on bending and flexing with her since it's kinda slippery right now. I'm also teaching her to listen to my body, which will be SUPER helpful during runs because she often doesn't want to stop lol
