New Training Plan

-NOTE:- This has to be edited because of the changes to Howrse. I am unable to type at the moment, so it will be edited later.

Over the past few days, I have had some more time to train some horses. I made up this new little training plan that I find very effective. Maybe it will help you guys? Try it out! You need to have a rabbit in your horse’s stall in order for it to work effectively.

First off, I start every day with salt stone, grooming, and at least 30 minutes in the pasture. This increases the morale allowing your horse to get the most skills out of training. Next,  my horse participates in two lessons. Even if the skills are bolded, it will still add skills to the top two categories.

By now, it’s about 11:45 or 11:15, depending how long you put your horse in the pasture (1 hour or 30 minutes, depending how much time you would like training). Continue you normal routine with training (i.e. training in stamina or taking rides) and go until your horse has 0% energy. Then stroke, drink, two carrots, and a turnip. Your horse should have 30% to 33% now and it should be around 15:00 to 16:00. If it’s later, that’s fine. It can’t be any later than 17:30. Your horse can now participate in two jumping competitions or a jumping and a cross country (each is two hours long! Make sure you have time!) You need to have 20% left by the end of the day so be aware of the energy you are using for comps. Make the difficulty low (Jumping – less than .32 difficulty; CC less than .99 difficulty)Before you start your comps remember this: Figure you need four and a half hours (comps and feeding). If you have any time left, put your horse in the pasture to cut down on the food cost.

Quick Overview:

salt stone, groom, pasture
two lessons
—11:45—(or earlier)
training until 0% energy
stroke, drink, two carrots, turnip
—no later than 17:30—
two competitions – Jumping and/or Cross Country
–no later than 21:30–

    Hey, I think this’ll work! One hitch: What’s a salt stone? Is it a salt block? How do you get it?

    You can find it by putting a horse in a box for some time. It will come up randomly. Once you get one, it works for all your horses and will never run out.

    Plus you can only do one lesson per day now, and there are no apples

    How do you use saltblocks is my problem… like i know how you get them but you cant use them… its like the sugar cubes and tubs of grease they do nothing they’re kinda pointless…

    I believe you have to go into your inventory and pick a horse to use the tub of grease and sugar cubes on, but I’m not sure if I’m right or not. I would go off of what Jessica says but I think that’s how I remember it.

    P.S. If you want to get with me on Howrse, I’m thewarrenranch on the international server and I try my darndest to rescue any horse going to the safe haven. Send me a message if you have one do we can try to work out a price. I don’t buy passes and I don’t have a ton of money but I’ll try to give you more than the haven would.
