One of my favourite exercises to help with a multitude of skills for jumping . Particularly good for improving canter rhythm, accuracy (being central over rails and learning to ‘see ‘ distances ) steering with the leg whilst improving the contact .. and so on ! Star can be any size , depending on the desired improvement , eg more towards turning improvements (smaller) or bigger distances and stride length (bigger) . Plus an excellent exercise in the winter to get the freshness off them !
