Cone Weaving Pattern

This is a nice cone weaving progression pattern.

Steering progression:

  1. Introduce/Review direct rein steering. Teach how  to adjust rein pressure depending on how tight a turn you need.
  2. Practice: weave just the wide cones, at the walk, working on direct rein steering
  3. Weave the wide cone and the narrow cones
  4. 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

Have fun!
