Horses in Geometry?

Ok, SO I have to do a math project in Geometry and I decided I wanted to do it on horses. Well, in class we can't get onto youtube but I saw a video called Geometry in Motion and all the horse websites(for math) say its great. Unfortunately, I couldn't understand a word. It was all mumbled-sounding.
My question to you guys,
What can I say involves horses and geometry? I know jumping but if you coud say what activity and what type of geometry(angles, theorems, postulates, etc..) it would be greatly appreciated and I will show my project on here once I am done. I will credit everyone who comes up with an idea and I will eventually need some pictures of the activites that I get approved.

Thank you!

Dressage has circles... and showmanship has triangles.

Hmmmm... All I can think of is Dressage as well... Conformation, maybe?

Ha! Conformation would be a great one! You could probably do the entire project on legs alone with conformation! Or perhaps proper riding form VS improper riding form (leaning forward, throwing off balance, leaning, etc)

We were scratching our heads and trying to remember all our geometry lessons when trying to constuct the round pen.
