Cloverleaf Exercise

Balmoral TV, Exercise

Episode summary

In this episode, Traci and Carleton Brooks demonstrate the Cloverleaf exercise for training show jumping horses.

This is an excellent exercise for horse and rider to teach balance as well as jump-and-turn. It involves a lot of steering and organizing your horse.

This can be modified for various degrees of difficulty.

In this exercise we are also teaching the horse to land on both leads.
