Pole Workshops

Pole work is one of John Fernand Marti´s main areas of expertise. The workshop consists of groups of several riders on horseback working with poles and cavalletis, assembled in various combinations. The course is structured to take into account the various levels, differentiating between beginners and competition riders.

Horses, when participating regularly, soon show significant improvement in their suppleness, rhythm and balance.

This is a welcome change in exercise not only, but especially, for athletic horses also resulting in an enhanced performance. While jumping horses improve their ability to react as well as their bascule, dressage horses improve the carrying power of their hindquarters, collection, their rhythm and suppleness.

Pole work is an educational and entertaining change in the training schedule for both riders and their horses when participated in on a regular basis.
