BUILD HIS BALANCE AND RHYTHM OVER FENCES
For this exercise, you’re going to build a grid of three fences in a corner of your schooling area (as shown in the diagram above). This is a progressive exercise, which starts with just poles on the ground, building up to three bounce fences.
Why ride it?
This is an excellent gymnastic exercise to help your horse to develop a powerful and rhythmical canter. It’s great for testing you can stay in balance over fences. Building this grid on a curve makes it quite challenging but it’ll really help to encourage your horse to bring his hindleg under his body and lighten his forehand.
