What distance between the bars on the ground according to the pace ?

Trot would be three feet
Distance between bars on the ground :
* Working trot: from 1.35 meters to 1.45 meters between the bars
* Working gallop: 2.70 meters to 3 meters

Distance between bars on the ground in a combination :
* A gallop stride from a B pony (from 1.08 meters to 1.30 meters at the withers) is equal to 2.90 meters
* A gallop stride from a C pony (from 1.31 meters to 1.40 meters at the withers) is equal to 3.10 meters
* A gallop stride from a D pony (1.41 meters to 1.50 meters at the withers) is equal to 3.30 meters

The principle is as follows:
For a horse a stride is equal to 3.50m. So to calculate the distance of a line it is enough to multiply 3,50m by the number of stride desired, then to add one (3,50). This last stride corresponds to the distance covered by reception of the first obstacle and to the call of the second obstacle:
For 1 stride: 3,50m X (1 + 1) = 7m
For 2 strides: 3,50m X (2 + 1) = 10,50m
For 3 strides: 3,50m X (3 + 1) = 14m
For 4 strides: 3,50m X (4 + 1) = 17,50m
For 5 strides: 3,50m X (5 + 1) = 21m
For 6 strides: 3,50m X (6 + 1) = 24,50m
