In the following video you’ll have a chance to train the vertical-to-vertical combination with Bernie Traurig. He is a US team veteran and EquestrianCoach.com founder and according to him this exercise is not as simple as it looks like. Traurig said that during the vertical-to-vertical combination you always have to evaluate your horse (it’s stride) and then adapt the combination.
The second thing that you must know is that this exercise must be used correctly in order to have good results. So, if you want to improve your horse’s jumping technique use the vertical-to-vertical combination properly- with suitable variations in distances and strategic placement of ground lines. This will also enhance horse’s ability to negotiate an in-and-out.
Have a closer look at the video below and follow Traurig’s instructions which will help you and your horse to improve your jumping and still feel comfortable. Share the video with other horse lovers.
