Basic exercise to develop horse stability in front of an obstacle

Description of the exercise: tips from the poles in front of the obstacle in the form of a cross and a pole adjacent to it. It is necessary to place four poles on the ground at the same distance under the horse’s trot, since you would place the cavaletti – from 1.20 m to 1.40 for horses with a wide gait. The distance between the last pole and the obstacle is 2.7 m and should not look too wide, unless your horse is doing very fast. If you feel that the horse is having difficulty jumping, increase the distance slightly to the obstacle. The spider is used as a guide, forcing the horse to move along the center line.
