Pectoral Hobby Horse

This is an Aquatic pattern from (pattern 13182)

Have people straddle the noodle like they would a horse. Have them form a circle (deep water is best) and using only arms in a breast stroke motion have them move in a circle following each other. Have them go half way around and have them turn around and go the opposite way. Do this several times. Have them face the center of the circle and using the same arms move in toward the center of the circle and then back up out of the circle. To back up they will use big arms in the form of a chest fly. Do this several times. Have them then move in a circle again just like the beginning and this should be done several times. Have them face the center of the circle and ride in toward the center then turn around and move away from the center of the circle. They will go forward to the center, turn around and go forward away from the center. Repeat the circle movement again, several times. Have them face center circle, ride in forward, turn around ride out forward then back in toward the center of the circle then turn around and back out of the center of the circle, several times. I use a 4 rule for this. Propel 4 times when in the circle then turn and go the other way. When facing center circle go forward 4 propulsions then backward 4 propulsions. With this 4 rule the circle stays intact and the whole thing stays very organized. The 4 rule also works well to generate a good amount of turbulence in the cirle inorder to provide some effective resistance.

Good luck & have fun.
