With this exercise you will be able to test your capacity of controlling the length of your strides on canter. It’s important to be able to have this ability with your horse as you need it to be able to adjust your strides before and after fences.
GOAL OF THE EXERCISE
You can pass the line first on two strides between each poles, which will be normal strides. Then, you can pass the line with three strides between each poles.
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.
After reading Sapiens and Homo Deus from the author Yuval Noah Harari, (check my October books list) I realized we are so lucky to live in a time where we have abundance of everything. We have light everywhere, water whenever we want, we can enjoy a nice weather outside during summer and winter. We have a lot that we take for granted, and if we continue living without caring about the future of our planet we might not have the luxury to live the same way anymore.
