I have a really simple question for y'all. What exactly is flat work?

work without jumps is the easiest explanation I can think of, someone else might have a better way of saying it. Haha

If I understand it correctly, you're right ridergirl. It is work that is done, quite literally, on the "flat". There are no jumps and I think it is generally done in the arena where there is no terrain factors either.

Yep, work without jumps is about it! :lol:

More technically "arena" work, as opposed to trail riding or hacking, although you can do arena figures in a field or down the trail, too...
