Laine Ashker continues to post new ideas for grid exercises to cure that winter boredom. These are great exercises for riders at any level — you could even make these grids into pole gymnastics for a greener horse or rider! Whether you are working on your position, your horse’s technique and footwork, or a combination of both, gymnastic exercises are a great way to accomplish your goals.
#GOTD alert! To create an even rhythm and consistent stride on the approach and the landing of your jump try this exercise! I have three very narrow oxers (make sure they're narrow) separated by three 9ft ground rails in the beginning, middle and the end. You can keep the oxers square so you can jump this grid from both directions! Enjoy guys! #LAE #superspartan #jumpday #gotthegridsgoingUP #onatuesday
And just for fun, here’s a look at Laine’s upper level partner, Anthony Patch, out stretching his legs!
