Polework is a great way to add variety to your horse’s training programme but it is also a brilliant way to improve certain aspects to his way of going including:

  • Better rhythm
  • Teaching collection
  • Improving suppleness

The beauty of polework is you don’t have to always ride your horse – there can be just as many benefits doing these exercise in-hand too.

Take a look at our video below where veterinary physiotherapist Sammy Finnemore shows you how to use this multi-purpose grid to give your horse a good workout. If you don’t have enough poles to build the full grade, build a smaller version or just one part of it at a time.
