How to set polls/jumps to your horses stride

Erm... yeah.

So I'm getting into jumping and what not. Ans I want to work on ground polls. I generally just lay them out and my horse works it out himself but someone was telling me that was all wrong. How do I measure and set up polls and jumps as such?

Depends on the stride of your horse. For a typical horse, usually 4 to 5 feet between each pole at the trot, while anywhere from 9 to 12 feet at the canter. Again, it really depends on your horse so do some trial and error. :)

Ok. That's what I normally do. I wasn't sure if there was a specific way to measure.
