I've been hearing/seeing some different things lately! Wondering what distance you all use for placing rails.
-When trotting into a fence and landing cantering
-Cantering into a fence w/placement pole before and after jump.
-Poles in the middle of a line: Ex: Jump- 1 stride- Jump, with a rail placed between the 2 jumps.
the "I'm In My 20's and Hope to Be a Good Rider Someday" clique
In the one stride I would place it in the middle, so if it's a trot in 18ft one stride it's at 9ft, if it's a canter in 24 ft one stride it's at 12 ft.
Trot placement poles are generally set at 9 feet, but can be rolled in as close as 6. Canter placement poles will be set at half the length of the stride you will come in at... generally 12 ft, but can be set as close as 9 feet.
