I would like to work on both my horses picking up their feet. I would like to set up ground poles and obstacles for them. How far apart do I place ground poles?....one regular sized horse and one draft.
If you do them in a semi circle forming a large fan shape then you can move the horse closer to the center or farther out to adjust to his stride. I think that farthest ends are 4' apart. The distance on the narrow end will be based on how long your poles are. Try to have an even distance between each pole.
Thanks guys. After posting this, I read a little on the internet and it seems to be quite scientific depending on what you are doing! I'll have to experiment a little. Saddlebag...that is a great idea!
Whenever I am working my horses with poles I place them two feet apart. I put a pole down and step off by placing my boots in between them for two feet. I usually set up six of them two feet a part and work them this way.
