AIMS

HORSES - Pole work provides suppling exercises for novice and more experienced horses alike. The exercises will have a beneficial effect on the horse’s flatwork because they will stretch the horse’s back and loosen other muscles and joints. The work encourages the horse to work in a calm rhythm and with balance. Helps with forward movement, straightness, and thus exercises his knees, hocks, fetlocks, stifles and shoulders. Helps him adjust stride over tricky terrain, carry himself, and look what he is doing. Increases confidence, corrects a horse that ‘rushes’, and gets them to pay attention. Helps to get him to co-ordinate his limbs.

RIDER – encourages light contact that does not restrict the horse, teaches rhythm and distance and to look and

to plan ahead.
