The trot race ๐Ÿ‡๐Ÿป

This exercise is one that most of my trainers have done I even have done it bareback. So the blue line is the start/finish pole, the red lines are poles or cones or jump wings used to mark the lap size (so you have to go around them) (obvs you can just go around the arena, but I prefer to do it this way) then the black point line is the first round where you "qualify" for the final round, there were 8 of us so 4 of us went first ant the first two "qualified" then the other 4 did the same... After you have the finalists you go through the pink point line and do pole bending (through the green dots, and again can be poles/cones/jump wings...) and we'd do 5 laps around, the the first ones are the winners. Also some rules: if you raise to a canter you have to let the one behind you infront, if you don't do the pole bending correctly, you go back and do them again/are disqualified. You can also get creative and add your own rules!
