It is a timed event. Where horse and rider run a weaving pattern through 6 poles.

Her whip never touches the horse fromt he looks of it ... she is just swinging her arm basically

Yep, she's not really hitting the horse with anything from the looks of it.

She does do the annoying kick-so-hard-your-butt-comes-out-of-the-saddle that I hate. But overall she kept out of the horses way and it was a good ride.

But my point was it showed what pole bending is :P

Yeah, I didn't like the kicking in that video. If I were that horse I'd buck her off. - My horsey and I only trot pole-bending,.. and maybe canter that last stretch. I'm not into speed events.
