This is a nice cone weaving progression pattern.
- Introduce/Review direct rein steering. Teach how to adjust rein pressure depending on how tight a turn you need.
- Practice: weave just the wide cones, at the walk, working on direct rein steering
- Weave the wide cone and the narrow cones
- Weave the wide, narrow, and zig-zag cones (Note: zig-zag cones add the challenge of turn then straight, turn then straight…)
For an additional challenge add:
- add leg use for bending
- steering in 2 point
- steering at the trot
