Jumping trianing is often considered by many to be the sole purpose for which ground poles are used.  But, with a little imagination, poles can be a very versatile training aid for all disciplines, and for the benefit of both horse and rider.  They will help to improve a rider's technique and accuracy with the aids, and develop a horse's suppleness, strength and obedience.

The author describes how basic pole arrangements can be adapted for every aspect of training and schooling, from the basic training of the young or novice horse to advanced dressage movements and jumping.  For those who have to work on their own without help or supervision, the poles are particualrly useful for helping riders moniotr how straight the horse is, and how accurate movements and figures are.

The book contains advice on tack, equipment and safety, has an instructive section on the natural aids, and emphasizes that only a correct position in the saddle can result in a horse's correct way of going.  In the section on remedial training, the author provides invaluable information on re-educating problem or spoiled horses and assessing the requirments and capabilities of the older horse.

Schooling with Ground Poles is not just another trianing textbook, but is an inspirational springboard from which all riders, instructors and trainers can develop ideas to suit their own horses and training regimes, and to add variety and interest to schooling sessions and lessons.
