A recent study performed at the University of Tennessee proved that ground poles at the walk increase muscle activity in both the longissimus dorsi (major back muscle group running along the spine) and the abdominal muscles. Ground poles at the trot increase muscle activity of the abdominal muscles. This confirms what we have often recommended, that cavaletti poles will increase strength and stability of the topline and abdominal muscles.
