Trot Poles

How far apart do trot poles need to be? As in, about how many inches or feet? Also, is it the same distance for english as it would be for riding western?

It will depend on your horses stride and the task you are working on.

I want to practice for trail classes. I wonder where to find the universal distance they set them at...?

Yearling
Start with about four feet and adjust as needed. The average is 4-4 1/2 feet for trotting.
