What’s In Your Arena? Presented by Attwood: Fun with Ground Poles

What’s in Your Ring? is an EN series sponsored by Attwood Equestrian Surfaces in which riders share their favorite jumping exercises. It’s easy to get stuck in a training rut, and we hope this will inspire you with fresh ideas that you can take home and incorporate into your own programs.

Ground poles are a super way to keep your winter indoor work interesting as well as leg up for the upcoming season. Whether you set up trot or canter ground poles, they are a low impact way to build your horse’s strength, improve his gaits and tune up your own eye for distances.

Tristan the Wonder Horse is a pro at ground poles (check out more of his amazing footwork on YouTube). In his latest video, Tristan demonstrates a relatively simple trot work exercise that is easy to set up and adjust for any sized arena. Enjoy!
