GoPro: Alternating Diagonal Combination

Finally got a chance to try out my new GoPro! This clip also features a cool exercise for horses that like to speed up in combinations (like Diego). Having the jumps be diagonals in an alternating pattern makes them slow down and think, at least until they figure it out!

Tip: make sure you walk the distance from the middle of the angled pole to the middle of the next one! And set the line a little long, because the horse will take off a bit sooner than you’d expect with straight rails due to the angle. I didn’t do that today (oops) and you can see that it’s just slightly short for D, although that isn’t a bad thing for him to learn to handle!
