Why use poles?

The exercises help the rider to ride with precision, improving the horse’s way of going and establishing correct training according to the scales of training, namely Rhythm, Suppleness, Contact, Impulsion, Straightness and Collection.

Before you ask, yes I have ridden every exercise in this book! My horses really enjoy pole-work and I also use them frequently as a teaching tool.

Try the exercises for yourself and I’m sure you will be amazed at the improvements that can be made, both in your riding technique and in your horse’s way of going. You will never be bored with schooling again!
