When long-lining or riding, we use a phone app that buzzes every X minutes for a total of Y minutes. This way we know approximately how long we’ve been working without constantly consulting our phones.
We make sure not to change gaits/activity exactly when the buzzer goes off, particularly not to stop at the final buzzer. Don’t want the horses to learn that buzz equals quitting time. They learn sh*t like that way too fast anyway.
