Fellow equestrian people! I HIGHLY recommend these flat work ground pole exercises! Had an hour long ride that was strictly surrounding these poles and it was a great workout for both me and my horse. It’s very simple and you can come up with any patterns you desire. I made up 4 different patterns that weren’t on here. I would also make my horse do pivots and 2-point turns in the middle. Had so much fun doing it. I would suggest that you start with the poles about 4 to 5 stride lengths apart just to get a feel of how your horse will move through it and then shorten it to a minimum of 2 strides, or 1 if your horse makes tight enough turns. Can do these at any gait and any discipline.

I do these once a week with Riley and some variation of them every ride on Arrow! Highly recommended, especially for horses who get bored easily!

Jumped Tommy yesterday.

I’ve started a plan so that we can get back into riding and jumping and actually get somewhere. Unfortunately we are just entering a cold snap, so I’m hoping it will warm up enough to get in a flat school today then he can have a few days off and I can cross my fingers that it’ll be warm by Thursday/Friday. Ugh stuff always comes up to foil my plan.

Three Day Event Competition - The Toughest Sport (by allinaday)

For all of my EVENTING JUNKIES out there. Watch this video. Really cool shots of the older eventing format and some of those great riders like Jimmy Wofford. 

This makes me feel like such a wimp when I realize how easy our events really are in comparison to what they were.

eventing is just the coolest

excellent video about eventing…

That was intense. You won’t ever catch me doing that.

I’m not gonna lie, I want them to bring the long format back. I think there is much more horsemanship involved, and the quality and caliber of horse and rider required is outstanding. Keep todays safety measures, but bring back the long format.

OMG this is terrifying…. why does anyone think this is a good idea?? near the end where they show all the falls… my heart was in my throat. so scary. especially the one where the girls horse falls on her.
