⭐The Diagonal⭐


I personally placed this layout on the HXF diagonal on the 'H' side of the school just off the track, sloping towards 'F'

You can also add another set of poles on the KXM diagonal on the 'K' side, sloping towards 'K' to create a shallow loop with a bit of a twist!

The poles are spaced slightly closer together because they are ridden on the diagonal, creating an extra bit of stretch for the horse. As a rule I use 5 heel to toe steps of my small size 3 feet, on this layout I use 4.5 heel to toe steps.


Number of poles required: Six

A: Trot

B: Walk, Trot & Canter

C: Walk, Trot & Canter

D: Walk, Trot & Canter

E: Walk, Trot & Canter

As always, any questions just ask! 💛
