    Default how to properly use gymnastics (video)

    I found this video of how to correctly use placement poles & gymnastics for training excellent. It's not in English, but well worth watching.

    I hope you all enjoy.

    Probably it took less time than we need to train a horse for Grand Prix.
    BTW do they have them in the 16h height ? I'd love competing one in the next World Cup final

    I can't remember the last time I laughed that hard!

    What scope!

    What a bascule!

    What a total lack of impulsion on the trot poles....

    Freakin' hysterical. that cat had to WANT to do that. I'm with everyone else. My cat would've looked at me like I'd hit the crack pipe.

    LOL! That cat got a workout! My cat hasn't endured that much physical activity in the last ten years.
