Why ever not?

Some folks do not have the ability to feel or anticpate and correct before a complication arises.

My horses side pass beautifully when the correct buttons are pushed. If I am teaching a person how to execute a side pass and my horse is not doing it correctly, the wall is a good teaching assistant to help that person understand.

If I have a horse that insists on moving forward or back when I am asking for 'over', it takes one less distraction out of the equation for the poor horse.

I used a fence to train mine to sidepass. Only took 10 minutes for a few days and they were doing it in the open. I don't have the need for the fence anymore but I don't see the harm in it. Like MLS said, it takes away one more direction that they can go.

A lot of reiners teach horses to rollback by using fences, that way the horse stops and turns and has the fence as a reference to move forward in a straight line.

"The greatest pleasure of a dog is that you may make a fool of yourself with
him and not only will he not scold you, but he will make a fool of himself too."

Working cow horse - we school on the fence too. A lot of folks warm up on the fence too.

I'm not asking for a battle. I am asking for an answer to my question.

I have yet to talk to a trainer that doesn't use the wall as a training tool.
