Your Horse (UK) - - Better Riding -

For this part of the ex­er­cise you need to raise all the poles on the di­ag­o­nal (b) a few inches off the ground. Ride a fig­ure of eight again, ne­go­ti­at­ing the poles and con­tin­u­ing round to the fan (a). In ris­ing trot, start a fig­ure of eight from the bot­tom right cor­ner of your arena and: l1 Ride over the poles on the di­ag­o­nal (b), keep­ing your head up and your hands low. l2 Con­tinue the fig­ure of eight round to the fan of poles (a) and trot over them. l3 Trot be­tween the poles on the di­ag­o­nal (b). l4 Re­peat the ex­er­cise on the other rein. Ride deeper into the cor­ners of the school if you want to ex­tend or col­lect the trot. Cool down your horse by walk­ing him around the arena for five min­utes on a long rein, in both di­rec­tions.
