So very recently I heard of cavaletti. I have seen them before, but never paid much attention. I read that they can be good for building top line.
I was wondering, how does one go about starting up? I have a few old poles and stands lying around, but I haven't jumped for years (although I know it's not proper jumping lol)
Is it possible to lunge over cavaletti first, to see how my horse gets along, or even do it at liberty? And do you do it at walk, trot or canter (or any?) And how many do you do in a row or is it just one at a time? Ooh and strides! This is why I never embraced jumping - counting strides Etc haha
I'm sure I sound super dumb asking all these, but I haven't heard of the benefits before. My OTTB mare has no topline and I thought it'd benefit her.
So, anyway, after you've finished giggling about how little I know about the subject (don't worry, I'm laughing at myself too!) could you give me a briefing on the subject?
