GOAL OF THE EXERCISE

Going from 1 to 5 without making a course mistake (haha). Just joking, or at least I hope for you that you are not going to forget the course…!

Every horses need different exercises to be ready for a competition. This little course is quiet mixed and offer a good range of exercises (single fence, double and line) with poles on the floor that will regulate their canter and teach them to come back at their place in combinations.

I’ve been reading a lot of articles about skin care routines and skin care resolutions for 2019 so I got inspired to make an article about skin.

I’m someone who have been struggling with acne for the past 10 years but absolutely not anymore because I found out what was the whole reason for my acne!!

Goal of the exercise

The goal of this exercise is to variate the number of strides between the two poles or the two cavalettis. You can do 8,7,6,5 strides depending on the length of your strides. You can variate by coming with big strides (lengthening the canter) or by coming with shorter strides (collecting).

This exercise should be done on canter of course. It will teach to visualize and learn to count your strides before a fence which will allow you to be much more precise when it comes to coming on a right distance to the fence.

Last week end, the final of the Longines Global Champions Tour was held in Doha at Al Shaqab. As an ambassador of JustWorld International, I got the opportunity to have a booth to bring awareness about the organization and try to raise some donations along with bringing new ambassadors. Al Shaqab has been such a support for us by giving us a spot to promote JustWorld to the public of Doha.

Kevin Staut who is also an ambassador and a 5* rider, passed by to hi and talked about JustWorld.

The goal of the exercise is to have a horse more and more reactive to the legs.

From halt, with relaxed legs, ask for walk. Just apply a light pressure from your calves and instantly release. If your horse doesn’t react, use “force 2” for a second.

You will realize quickly that it’s when you release the action that the horse starts walking. He can even respond before the pressure if he feels you have to intention the release.

In this exercise you will be able to test the receptivity of your horse. This gymnastic will make them work their entire body and really help them improve the mindfulness of their movements. I tried my best to draw for you this exercise as nice as possible, I have to admit it doesn’t look that nice! haha. But you have at least a good idea of how the exercise should look like.

I added a video of the exercise with some variations that you can also do.
