Practice Courses Anyone??

So i'm not that creative at making these. I was wondering if anyone has any hunter/ jumper courses I can do with my pony. Our indoor arena isn't that so it can't be really long. We have about five jumps and about five cavelleties also. A picture would be great with distances. I would love ya tons if you could help me out.

In my favorite exercise you put a jump in the center an then do figure eights. It really helps you focus on lead changes and judging distance. I also love to design my own course for Comanche and I. Just get a peice of paper and start drawing! (It also helps to search for hunter courses on youtube and use some of their ideas :) ) Have fun!

Do you have an iPhone or iPod Touch? There is an app called Cavalletti which does just that!

There's an app for cavalletti?! That's so cool. Gotta love Apple!

JJB, long skinny arena begs for gymnatics. So much fun for the horse and great for teaching rider balance. I'm guessing there's an app for those two with correct distances.

Wow how did I never know that was there. It will save so much time and paper scribbling out course ideas. Worth every penny of that measly dollar. THank you!
