So, I've recently been given permission to ride and work with an Arabian mare whenever I please. I would love to turn her into my little dressage mare. She's been out of work for a little while and needs some good muscle development. I know that ground poles can be a fantastic tool for this when used properly. My biggest challenge is knowing how to correctly space the poles. Does anyone have tips for this? I would like to space a few trot poles to encourage her to reach out a little more, as currently her trot is more like a western jog than a proper english trot. She's about 14 hands or so... I'm not sure how much a difference that makes.
