Monday = riding excersice of the week 2
This excercise will increace your speed control and knowledge about how long one step is for your horse depending on the speed.
Place 4 poles on the ground in 3 sets, creating 2 serpentine turns. The distance between the poles in the middle set should be normal, the distance in the first set a bit shorter than normal and the third set should have a longer distance than normal.
Starting in trot - ride through all three sets, adjusting the speed and preparing the horse for the nest set already while you are turning. Try not to loose the rytm or to let the horse 'glide away' from you.
Once this sequence is working, try to variate it a bit, you can do the excercie in canter and ride different sequences.
