Improve your horse’s balance

British Eventing’s new Young Rider sponsor Saracen Horse Feeds shares another exercise for you to try at home.

Get ready for the season ahead with some training ideas from Saracen rider Connie Copestake.

This is a great exercise to improve your horse’s balance and suppleness.

Start in trot first to get your horse used to changing bend over the pole, and ensure they stay upright and balanced when turning back to the next pole.

Once established, try it in canter, encouraging your horse to change lead when turning to a new direction.
