Rising Star

The 7s

I call this game the 7s. Can be done with or without stirrups. Used to strengthen muscles used over jumps without having the added stress on a horse's joints. At the trot, do 7 steps posting, 7 sitting, 7 in 2-point. Can also add 7 steps of standing in the stirrups. Repeat for as long as desired. When comfortable, switch the number (lower numbers will be quick and therefore harder).
