Tania Grantham’s diamond pole layout exercise

Ready to give your horse a skill boosting schooling session? Tania Grantham explains why diamonds can be a rider’s best friend.

Want to know how you can give your horse the most thorough schooling session possible? By using poles, of course. Quick and easy to set up, my diamonds exercise is worth its weight in gold. 

This exercise will take you over angled poles in pairs, so you can practise riding with purpose and aiming for different lines. If you sway from your original line the striding will be off, so it’s a real test of accuracy.
