[Info] Blup and training tips
No the rides tab doesn't close because you can still do rides etcept they are pointless because you don't gain anything. The training bars closes because you can't do more training once the bar is full.
As for increasing skills here are your options
Standard ones you have probably done are...
-comps for skill gain
Then you can do the following...
-playing with companions that give skill gain
-lessons (only affect top 2 skills though)
-beach rides as you mentioned (you don't gain skills. Skills from your lowest skill get transfered to your best skill)
After the age of 25 horses can no longer gain skills.

Ive done this way many times on international :
Bold in speed & dressage then put your horse in cross - country competitions and they should earn most their wins from there
If you still have a couple of wins left to go bold you horse in stanima , gallop & jumping and then put your horses in trot races.
Bold your horses trot and age him / her to 10

Another way which is fast is you do :
1 hour trot riding until you cannot earn anything more.
Then do gallop riding until you have nothing left to earn ( if your horse has jumping as one of its 3 best skills do jumping riding until you earn nothing else )
Fully train your horse in its 3 best skills. ( leave 1 bar if its trot )
Then keep on doing trot races once you have your wins then bold you horse in its 3 best skills ( if the horse has trot as its 3 best finish off the trot bar )
If you want you can also do dressage competitions as you can win from there

Yay! I'm so glad this topic is here!
My youngest (and best) horse needs four months (when he turns ten) until he's BLUPed!
I'm finally starting to understand BLUPing and work out a bit of a method.

Train for as much as your horses energy can take in things it excels in. Then get its energy down to 20% by training. This is what I did on Dia from 2 1/2, look!

I have started doing this:
Finish dressage and speed rides
Enter comps until I have 20 wins
Finish rides for top skills
Train top skills and then train other skills
Not sure if this is faster or not but alot of people were saying bold speed and dressage so then you cna enter easy competitions :P

When i train horses on my international account i trained in stamina first every day when they have 100% energy train for around 3 hours 30. then i do the others in order, works for me...

I don't do lessons much while BLUPing - but then, I'm not interested in skillers. If you wanted a good skiller, then it is a good idea, if not - it's best not to.
I start doing lessons when I am waiting for my horses to turn ten.
Hope this helps.
Ammy it would depend whether you want high skills or just fully bluped?
For example, when I am bluping my skillers or grand prix horses then I do a lesson each day no matter what.
But if I am just bluping for breeding then I don't usually do a lesson each day.

For Fjords, only train in (and in this order) speed, gallop & dressage. Then do short gallop rides, beach rides & gallop rides. This is what I do with my Fjords. it may work with other breeds with dressage, gallop & speed as top three in genetics.
