Why:If you have been to one of my clinics in the past year, you have probably seen this exercise as it has become a favorite of mine, and I often also have it set up in my arena at home. One of the many reasons why I love this exercise is because not only is it easy for the clinic organizer to set up, but it is an exercise that riders can take home with them and easily set up in their own arenas after the lesson.

This is one of my favorite exercises for horses that are just coming back into work after some time off, whether they were getting some scheduled vacation or some unscheduled rehabilitation. With plenty of rails on the ground, Exercise #1 is a great exercise for reminding the horses of where to put their bodies. The rails are not there to try to trip them up in an effort to sharpen them. Rather, the rails are there to spell things out a bit and give them confidence. If the horse starts to rush a little or lands in a heap, the ground rails help the horse and rider regain their center of balance. Consequently, if the rider gets off balance, the ground rails will make the horse’s job twice as hard, as they now have to not only keep their center of balance, but also adjust for their off-centered rider. So it is a great exercise of control for the rider.

My signature clinic exercise was adopted some 30 years ago from show jumping legend Anne Kursinski. It seems really simple at first glance, with just two jumps — a vertical to an oxer set quite low for the level — but it is deceptively hard once you add in all of the different variations that we will discuss later. For me, this is a great exercise that becomes a segue to establishing consistent course riding. The rider becomes acutely aware of the direction, speed, balance, and rhythm before, during and after the jump. With the rider’s increased awareness, she begins to have an influence on the basic components.
