Looking for something fun to do in your next jumping session? Well this one is definitely worth a shot. Perfect for practicing for jump offs, setting a rhythm and having a bit of fun, The Mercedes is bound to be a new favourite!
And there you have it, our final January "Ultimate Exercise!". I wont lie to you all, finishing with a jumping exercise was ideal, this is where I excel most, and well who doesn't love a good jump!
This months exercise incorporates oxers and raised canter poles into a figure of 8. While it sounds relatively simple, certain aspects present their own challenges for different horses.
We've been doing quite a good bit of jumping recently, with both of us moving up in the heights, so it was great to do an exercise that made us focus on the more technical side of jumping for a change. This was a great exercise to get us working on tightening up those turns after a fence.
And we're back! Check out how me and Coco got on in our first lesson back after our (involuntary) break where we tackled the square exercise and some bounces.
