Slice N Dice: Jumper Turn Exercise

This is a great little exercise for sharpening up jumper turns, plus it’s just a heck of a lot of fun for you and your horse!

Here I have the three jumps set roughly 30′ from middle to middle, but you can lengthen that distance for a less turny or experienced horse. I only use cavaletti height jumps for these exercises, because the turns are quite tight and the slices quite steep. Done properly, they will encourage your horse to sit on his butt and power up over the cavaletti, so you don’t want to make them too high and risk overfacing them!

There are several patterns you can do with this configuration, but the video shows my two favourites, the Figure 8 and Advanced Pole Bending. Try them out!
