How To Use Trot Poles

How To Use Trot Poles

In this guide, equestrian rider and trainer Melanie Gatt from Stag Lodge stables in Richmond Park, London shows you how to use trotting poles.

Top Tips

  • Use more than two trotting poles at a time to keep your horse from simply jumping through them.
  • Ensure your horse is in an active trot and as straight as possible as you approach the poles and keep contact on the rein so it lifts its head and feet as it trots through them.
