You need to start from one end of the rodeo arena and move towards the pole. You should be on the right side and then ride alongside the poles. You need to walk until you reach the pole on the opposite side or the pole which lie furthest away from the point you started.
After reaching the pole furthest away from starting point, you need to turn left. Your front side should be facing towards the remaining poles.
Weave around the poles
Now you need to weave around these poles. You should avoid knocking down any poles or five seconds will be added to your time in a match. After you reach the last pole, you need to turn right.
After turning right, you need to weave back in the same pattern until you reach the last pole. Turn left after reaching the final pole.
Go where you started
Now you need to ride to the place where you started i.e. at the end of the arena. Remember that you should not stop unless you cross the timer.
Continue doing this until your horse learns and successfully do pole bending. Remember that it may take few days or weeks before your horse gets better in this.
