Go to the American Endurance Riding Conference (AERC) website http://www.aerc.org and click on "new member information." In about the 6th paragraph down you'll see a link for a conditioning article provided by the Southeastern Endurance Riding Association (SERA). It answers the questions you have and it's based on a 3-month conditioning schedule. Added advantage: even though you're not in the southeast, you probably have the same lovely temperature and humidity levels in September! (At least we did when I lived in East Texas!)

Reason: added info
It's just grass and water till it hits the ground.
