trot poles on a circle, lots of transitions, hill work, backing up, stretching, lots of impulsion
Stretching the horses legs by picking them up and put the hoof to the bottom of the shoulder and the back legs pick the hoof up and let the pony stretch the leg out backwards
Trotting up hills and trot poles are great, there’s some great ideas for setting up cool patterns to try on Pinterest
