Hello,
I have lost my bookmark for a great cavaletti exercise website that I found. I think the website ended in something a bit obscure like "tripod" or something. It was great, it had something like 20+ exercises drawn out with measurements etc. If anyone knows the one I'm talking about, a link would be much appreciated!

TIA

Was it a geocities site? I think I found it, but then the page had been removed.

Do you have access to Ingrid and Reiner Klimke's book, Cavaletti: the Schooling of Horse and Rider over Ground Poles? It may be a good alternative for you.

Best of luck!

I think that website has been removed. It was on members.tripoid.com or something like that and it said it had been removed due to some policy violation

Darn! Yes, I think it was the geocite one, that's the obscure name I was thinking of not Tripod. Good thing I printed it out- but too bad it's at home in FL and I'm across the pond! But, if fellow COTHers are interested, when I get home in March I'll re-create the exercises and put them up.

And yes, Klimke's book is great, definitely recommend it!

Spin-off, does anyone have any online examples of courses that I could get ideas from for my own course building at home? TIA

You can look at the courses of the Stuttgart GP and World Cup here:

There are a lot of equitation course diagrams here:

I like how some of the courses feature the jump details, like brush or brick wall, not just lines with numbers.

Those German courses are sweet!

Thanks! I had seen this sight before in my internet browsing and forgot to save it! Great find. Keep 'em coming guys!

Will do, when I get home in March! Someone needs to remind me in March and bring this post back to life.

I found an Ingrid Klimke cavaletti seminar overview:
http://www.aquilapre.com.au/IngridKlimkeSeminar2009.html

Has lots of exercises and the distances are listed. :)

I have a couple of exercises on my website, they are actually part of a great book on gymnastics (both over poles and over fences) called "Celebrity Jumping Exercises".

Thanks for the helpful websites everyone!

You should also check out 101 Dressage Exercises for Horse & Rider and 101 Jumping Exercises for Horse & Rider. Both books are very good and they have a lot of exercises to choose from.

Haha, I have a WB here in south Florida - NO HILLS :( who is desperately weak in his rear end. He NEEDS ground poles and caveletti. Really. I am looking forward to seeing what you've got! Here'a a recent thread about him :)

We actually had to "Build" a hill when we designed the farm. However, by now the rain has pretty much flattened it :-(

Ok, so as promised, sort of, I will be re-creating the exercises that were in the "original" Cavalletti Exercise website that was such a gold mine, but as been taken down.

Here are the first 5 exercises (http://sakurahillfarm.blogspot.com/2010/11/some-of-my-favorite-cavaletti-grid.html). I will post them in groups of 5 weekly so stay tuned.

Unfortunately my scanner is broken so I'm going to have to keep you guys in anticipation. I will be posting the original exercises in my blog in groups of 5 from my scanned packet. They should be coming weekly.

Is there any way you can email these to me when you get them scanned? PLEASE :winkgrin:

I just saw this thread, and I believe that I have what everyone is looking for! I copied and pasted an entire website of cavelletti exercises, with the explanations for each one, into Word documents so I could print them out and have in the barn. And the good news is that they are still saved on my computer! From looking at the ones that MCarverS posted on her blog, it is the exact same thing. Send me a PM with your email and I can email them to whoever wants them!!! I don't think I am able to post attachments on here, otherwise I would share them with all. I am happy to send them to whoever wants them!!!
