Conditioning Cues:

“When I lived in Hanford, California, I had a track I trotted her on and here in Lincoln I ride out a lot to keep her air up. She has been ridden out a lot; she really likes that. I will work the barrels once or twice a week maybe. I focus on lots of collection, big even circles, and encouraging her not to get tight. I will pony her off her favorite horse, and just really focus on keeping her fit.”
