Gymnastics – Improving horses technique and balance.
Level: Horse comfortably jumping 1.05m – Rider capable to jump 1.10m
For green horses or intermediate riders only place first part of the exercise (trotting poles, cross bar and vertical).
Trot in and ride looking up toward a focal point at the end of the arena.
The exercise also contributes to refine rider position and balance.
It is recommended to limit the high of the exercise to a 1.00m for verticals and no more the 1.20m for the oxer. Adjust distances accordingly.
