    Default 28' in a gymnastic line? Ref: EN Wofford Clinic report

    Did the 28' distance in the first gymnastic line in the EN Wofford clinic recap catch anyone else's eye?

    Pretty sure I've done it before. Its a compression/expansion/compression exercise. The two bounces (trotting in) get you bouncy, then you push across the the hogs back and compress again on the out of the two bounces. You build up to it in a very progressive manner---you do not just go right through the line! The low wide oxers at the other end of the ring is the opposite....the wide oxers get you expanding and then the bounce in the middle get you expand/compress/expand.

    He will adjust the distances some depending on the horses in the group and he can change it up a ton of ways (taking out part of the line).

    I was skeptical when setting fences the day before but it seemed to ride well, though I did find there to be a tendency to get a little caught by the 2nd set of bounces the first time through.
