Today's grid was a Jim Wofford Special: a set of four trot poles to a cross rail, 19' to a vertical, 20' to an oxer, and 18' to another vertical. The goal here was adjustability, to help the horse set himself lengthen and shorten on his own. We started with just the trot poles, and slowly added elements one pole (then jump) at a time until the whole line was set up. Both Soon and his jumping pal were spectacular. No issues through the grid whatsoever, which is great considering that we really haven't done grids consistently....ever.
