BOUNCES: 12FT APART

Your Horse (UK) - - Better Riding -

Many peo­ple do en­joy in­cor­po­rat­ing bounces as part of their train­ing. “I feel horses ben­e­fit more from work­ing over raised can­ter poles, which en­cour­age your horse to take off with both his hind feet square on the ground and give him more power,” ex­plains John.
