Smile Despooking and Trail

Im HUGE on despooking my horse and working on perfomance trail. I was just wondering if anyone had only good obstacles they have seen or heard about. Im looking for obstacles more advanced then just the regular ones like the backing L, S,.. or the bridge. If you know of any please tell me or good twists on the classics would be nice also. To give you an idea of what my mare has done is going over styrafome, plastic bags, plastic bottles, tarps, sheets, cardboard; under "the car wash" tarp cut into strips and hung above the arena; tetertotter; matress; water; the backing L; sidepassing the L; you get the idea. So please you have any ideas please lay them on me. Thanks

Ok, I used to go trail riding at my friends house when I was younger before I got any horses, and what she did was had her brother standing somewhere in the woods and when we rode by he would slowly take a fake (decoration) deer and would move it out on the trail as if it were slowly just walking on the trail. It was amazing to see how the horses reacted lol. They froze in their tracks and just looked at the deer.

- If today was your last day, and tomorrow was too late, could you say goodbye to yesterday?
