Rhythm, Suppleness, Contact, Impulsion, Straightness

Check out Horse Network’s post on the Mercedes Exercise. Love it. I used to practice this exercise all the time back when I was working with horses that were out of shape and building up muscle again to join school programs. It works their laterals, butts, backs, everything, all while mentally keeping them interested. It’s effective at the walk/ trot/ canter depending on their strength level. Highly recommend!
