Butterfly Exercise

Level: advance riders

I love Luciana Diniz who is originally from Brazil (also has South American background) but moved to Europe at a young age. She became a top Show Jumper Rider. I do believe she is an inspiration for any rider. So, I follow her, I learn from her and would like to share this exercise that she uses very frequently in her GROW clinics and with her own horses.


I adopted the exercise and try to use it as much as I can at home or in my own clinics. It is great to develop balance, control and rhythm.

It can be modified to be ridden at LOWER LEVELS with trotting poles instead of jumps. I will post the arena plan with the trotting poles in a different blog.
