Gymnastic Groundwork Pattern – Pedestal, Poles, Circles, Collection, Flexions

This Pattern is from our Gymnastic Groundwork Home Study Course and gives you a taster of some of the exercises included in that Course. Patterns are progressive and non-competitive. They are designed to give you focus, guidance and the chance to put all of the exercises you’re learning together. They should be fun, too!

As you can see, the priority is not perfection, but connection. We don’t mind if you and your horse have a little muddle here are there. It’s about getting back on track together calmly and positively.

If you liked the vibe of this training, you’ll love our Gymnastic Groundwork Home Study Course 🙂 These exercises are part of our Gymnastic Groundwork Home Study Course, which teaches you how to improve your horse’s suppleness, straightness, body awareness and movement. It starts with the theory of why this work benefits horses and what exactly it is you’re training. The practical lessons start from leading exercises and build gently and progressively from there, so it’s very clear even if you’ve never done any of this work before. It includes in-hand work, liberty training, object work for body awareness, lateral movements, lunging and all terrain training – all trained softly and positively with the emphasis on both of you having fun!
