Why do an obstacle trail course, or work on obstacles with your horse?

Benefits for the horse:

  • Improves balance, coordination and foot control
  • Develops the thinking side of the horse's brain
  • Develops trust if you work through a scary obstacle in small systematic steps
  • Develops fitness and athleticisim
  • Develops confidence 

Benefits for the Handler

  • Improves timing and feel of cues
  • improves balance
  • Develops confidence
  • Builds your confidence
  • Improves communication
  • Improves the partnership you have with your horse

Spots will be limited to 9 participants.

We will be using the course from the Virtual Trail Challenge #4.  If you enter that challenge, I am also willing to film for you.  Entering the challenge is NOT REQUIRED.  This is an excellent opportunity for you to have some fun with your horse.  Course can be worked in-hand and ridden.  I will be available to help with training and calling of the patterns if you would like.  You are also welcome to work on your own.

This will take place in our outdoor arena.  If inclement weather, a refund will be issued.  An email will be sent out by early afternoon if it looks like a cancellation is necessary.

We always appreciate when you share with your friends!
