Improving Seat Connection with Trot Poles

International show jumper Lillie Keenan uses this fantastic pole exercise, taught to her by Michael Matz, for improving a good connection from the riderโ€™s seat, rather than the reins and hand. In this video, Lillie demonstrates how you can use the poles to mimic the approach to a jump in the ring. At first she shows you how you can try it with a young horse and then makes it harder with some variations. Try out this exercise if you wanted to improve your seat and practice to approach to a jump!
