Thursday Video: Ground Poles

There have been times I’ve called my horse a cow… I think I was doing the cow a grave injustice.

Most good trainers know that a solid foundation of ground work must be laid before progressing to riding. Even once you get to the point of riding, gymnastics such as ground poles are a great way to keep your steed fit. Apparently these things hold true even when you branch out of the equine realm and into the bovine world.

Take a look at Lotus doing ground poles.
