Go large around your arena and then, in walk: l1 Start a figure of eight at the opposite end of the arena to your fan of poles. l2 Walk over the poles across the diagonal (b) and continue to ride the second loop at the top, passing behind the fan of poles (a). l3 As you ride back across the diagonal, pass through the poles (b), keeping your reins symmetrical to ensure your horse stays on a straight line. l4 Repeat this on the other rein and then change direction. l5 When you’re ready, raise the poles on the diagonal at alternate ends and repeat the exercise. l6 Do this in trot, too. Also do the exercise on both reins and in both directions.
