Crossing over from the dressage world: my guy is starting to let me know that he's really bored with the dressage "homework"
my trainer has given us. I'm thinking he might not think of a line of canter bounces (ie: tiny cross-rails) as "work", but I'm not sure what the best distance is for spacing them. Can you guys help, please?
For a trot in, I always set it 9' for the first bounce, 10' to any subsequent. Canter in is 12' for a horse with a pretty regular stride. :-)
Yep, this. Althought you can set for every 9' depending on what you're trying to accoomplish. Works wonders with just poles on the ground as well, and the horses don't see 'jumps' that way. Just the way their little brains are wired, LOL.
