October 12, 2007, Newsletter Issue #245: Benefits of Grids/Bounces

Tip of the Week

Most common grids are pole to crossrail to Vertical to Oxer to crossrail. This arrangement allows for the natural loss of impulsion of the horse as the grid comes to an end.

Bounces teach horse/rider balance & coordination. They develop scope & eye for distance. Bounces are to teach rhythm, balance, timing, coordination between & in both horse & rider, individually & as a team.

YOU DO NOT NEED HEIGHT IN BOUNCES FOR GREEN HORSES/RIDERS.

Bounces and gridwork need only be a progression of low obstacles that create repetition.
