Who hasn't practiced the infamous serpentine? But have you thought of transitioning it to jumping?
Laurel Farms went to Percy Warner's Cross Country Course several weekends ago. Because Steeplechase had just occurred, we found that all of the jumps had been moved into a line at one end of the course. Our traditional cross country course was not an option, however Laura had a brilliant plan! Check out the diagram for a setup that coudl easily be modified. The overall goal is to practice navigating a serpentine with the added complication of jumps.
Not only did it test our ability to execute controlled turns on both leads but it was great for challenging us to maintain a balanced canter on the uphill and downhill approach. (the jumps were located on a small hill crest)
Stay tuned for some great and budget friendly cross country jump ideas too!
