Videos on the Hourglass Exercise (Figure 8)

This exercise asks you and your horse to take part of a circle, connect it to a straight line and change direction. This is asked in the show ring, regardless of which discipline, Jumpers, Hunters, Dressage. You can increase the difficulty by adding a cavaletti like we did or even a small oxer or vertical. The objective is to create a “should-be” track and use the appropriate aids to help the horse to stay on that track.
