We're all quite familiar with PT Barnum's quotation "there's a sucker born every minute". One goog thing about learning dressage movements with a pool noodle (I said that tongue in cheek) is you won't get bucked off.

If I had a dollar for the amount of times I've yelled "keep the forehand straight on the track" in a travers I would be able to buy a few of these :P I still remain that in general, lateral movements are ridden so poorly I think a pool noodle is a great tool for getting through to some people... keep in mind the $50 gets you a DVD too...

Well if you are noodle fishing you might get a bite or two...but not sure about any humps though.

LOL you guys are funny. Im glad I was not the only one who was impressed with it. I felt stupid when I saw this and I know its a gimmick because you can make one yourself. However like one of you said you do get a video with it. I feel like I am on the verge of understanding lateral work but this takes the cake. And I think when I get back with my friends im going to go buy some and joust with them to!

Just gimme your address, Anebel, and I'll send you 3(!) noodles all in different colors.

But seriously I'm surprised to hear that some high-level riders have problems with the lateral movements (I'm talking about your previous post). I'd expect it to be part of the test, so how would you get good scores then?

I thought it was brilliant. As I was riding today, I imagined that my horse was a pool noodle and would you know, our lateral movements were much better!

Imagining your horse is a broom or a pool noodle helps? OK. Now, when you're on the pool noodle, do you have to imagine that it's a horse, for it to work for you? OMG how confuddling!

The pool noodle doesn't look like fun to me. It reminds me of when I was little & rode broomsticks pretending they were horses, & how it just didn't compare to riding a living, breathing horse.

Well I don't ride Dressage and I don't know the gal peddaling the pool noodle(wish I would of thought of this) ...but I could not help but to giggle at the background music which sounded suspiciously like something that would be on the Jersey Shore...I felt like doing some fist pumping....

<-------- Is wondering if you have to ask permission from your noodle before mounting?
