Cones on poles while weaving

This is such a simple but wonderful activity that makes the child aware of her body's position and need to reach in either left or right directions as the poles change from being on her left to right to left side. This is also a great way to encourage transitions to sitting backwards or sideways as needed to reach the cones. I wish I worked at a place that allowed this type of activity set up.

  1. I also like the idea of having the leader using long lines instead of leading from the head. Its very European. When long lining the leader does not influence the movement of the horse as much. It is a higher quality of movement.
