Ground pole exercises for greenies
Yes, another tread by me. I just keep having questions. Anyways, I have a 3yo mare that will hopefully end-up as my working hunter/eq over horse, bought with the potential to compete at a much higher level than I have previously. Obviously she is too young to jump, and we have been working on basic dressage things, and getting her ready for a hunter under saddle class. She is getting the basics down with driving into the bit, transitions, proper bending and some basic play in the length of her stride. I am starting to introduce ground poles to her as a way to get her used to her own feet/coordination and to help prevent boredom in our sessions. Do you guys have any specific configurations or exercises you like to do with your horses over poles? I'm just looking for ideas. Thanks, Kimberly.
