Riding is not a sport that you can pick up one day and put down another…
It’s an exciting time of year for those of us who love horses. Horses, and their riders and trainers, have just finished their summer season. Our work has been critiqued by judges and proven in competition. Now, we prepare for next year…
What are our goals? Where do we go from here? What are the possibilities for the future with each partnership? What new partnerships need to be created?
If you’re anything like me winter means staying home and trying to figure out how to keep your training on track.
It’s the time of transition from home barns to other venues for the winter season or it’s time to prepare for indoor training at home. We are hunkering down, hoping to weather what could be record-breaking snowfall and freezing temps (let’s hope not), and figuring out how we will keep our training on track.
In either case for those of us who ride and compete with horses, the training continues. Riding is not a sport that you can pick up one day and put down another. Our equine partners require care 24/7, 365 days a year.
Global Training Systems grew out of my desire to improve my training options and keep myself and my horses moving forward.
For most amateurs, if you’re anything like me, winter means staying home and trying to figure out how to keep your training on track. Who can we ride with? How will we keep in touch when we’re in New England and our trainer has headed South with our barn’s top competitors?
It was in the midst of this very struggle that Global Training Systems was born. It grew out of my desire to improve my training options and keep myself on track so my horses and our partnerships could continue to be successful.
What’s your plan for the winter season? How are you staying connected with your trainer?
We all struggle and we all keep learning and growing. The learning and time with our beloved horses keeps us going. I’d love to hear from you.
