To start off with, we’re going to jump this
line as a bending line. This means that I want to come to each jump straight on. It’s
more important that I concentrate on having a good canter and holding a good track, than
that we get the exact strides that are set here. And that time he held a really nice,
even canter and we were able to get the four strides and then the three strides. If your
horse hasn’t done this kind of exercise before, you might find that they’re a little bit wiggly
and not getting the exact strides can be difficult.
