Jumping Gymnastics!

Posted on 4 March, 2013 at 16:18
Well the weather prevented us from riding outside today. Again making me thankful for the wonderful indoor arena at CPH. So I turned on the radio and prepped for some intense flat work drills. Apparently I had set the bar too low for today, ha!

Luciano was wonderful and very willing and supple in everything I asked him to do. I challenged him more by taking each exercise to the next level, and I was met with more willingness and suppleness. So I figured, hey lets set up another gymnastic and raise the bar (pun intended). 

I started off with a basic gymnastic: 3 trot poles 9' to cross-rail 18' to a vertical. Simple, easy. Raised the cross-rail to a vertical, and the last vertical to an oxer. Wonderful! I have only schooled him over an oxer in one other gymnastic session, so I made sure to take small steps in upping the challenge. We went over it a few times in the fashion, then I changed it up a bit to about 26' in between jumps and asked for a tiny little two stride. I feel this was really beneficial for him in rocking back onto his haunches before the jump to balance and pick up the correct lead for the direction I asked after the jump. I then put it back to the trot poles 9' out to a 2' vertical, 18' to a 2'6" oxer with maybe 20" spread. Beautiful!

Luciano was very proud of his hard work, and felt like he was walking on clouds! I thanked him for a wonderful ride, and removed the saddle and cooled him out bareback. A wonderful end to a wonderful session. :)

Business growth comes only after strong leadership. Your target and your vision must be clear to you and to your team. Even if your team loses the track of the actual vision of the company then it is your duty to take it back on track For More Information.
