Walk Walk and then walk some more - Bill Hoos Not a wandering, disconnected walk. A purposeful, stretched, on the bit walk. With a lot of swing and connection. You need to be able to walk for 45 minutes a day like this. It will do your horse more good than anything else. It might be boring, but do it. Build up. Start with 15 minutes, then 30, then up to 45 or even an hour or more. Pay attention, keep the horse between your aids, round, connected. Then do something with it, work on turns, zigzags, rollbacks, leg yields. Keep the horse engaged and get a quality walk!
