bridle-less: soundtrack-for-lovers: e-q-u-i-t-a-t-e: I am loving these schooling exercises, they are super helpful and a great way to improve both horse and rider. [x] Exercises by Ali M. I currently have the pinwheel of death set up but have been too scared to try it… the bounces one though… OMG The pin wheel one is actually awesome!! We had one up for a while and it was fun once the horses figured out what they were doing, however, the bending bounces looks crazy I.o
Exercise #2 - i like adding in the phase's and i like the build from controlled trot to gradual release and stretch at the oxer. Do nothing but balance the horse. I'd also like to see this done in reverse order. from stretch, to coming back into control and out in trot. a 'simple' exercise with a lot of finesse.
Volume 1, No. 3 focuses on the benefits of gynmastic exercises for horse and rider. It also provides some simple trot pole exercises you can try at home. Based on a larger article from Issue 2, Athleticism. Download the PDF here: http://wp.me/p3ER8w-8B
