So I have a semi-green warmblood gelding who has reached that point in his life... The gymnastics phase...

Anyone have any cool ones they like? Also, help with the spacing would be great (I've never set up a gymnastic on my own before :no: *embarrassment*).

Any ideas on how to make something really fun for him?

I second this. Great book - I use it all the time. It's like the gymnastics bible ;)
