Saddlebag- That's awesome thank you for sharing. As much as I love riding the ground work is my favorite. I just love trying to figure out how they think.

Nothing wrong with that. If you can get in their heads, it's much easier to get on their backs.

Years ago I worked with a 10 yr old gal and her pony that was terrified of tires. A previous owner had tied her to one to graze. Something frightened her and when she ran the tire was flopping behind her. We spaced to tires as far apart as it took to get her to walk between, about 20'. She'd get part way then quickly back up. I had someone stand and rattle some oats the next time the pony stopped. She had to deal with her fear or having some oats. The oats won. We gradually closed the gap until she was stepping over them, still getting her oats. When her owner rode the pony up to the tires she walked over them like an old pro. She had dealt with her fear on her own.

I love the tarp monster! Did you paint it on or use markers?
I have made a pedastal out of a old tractor tire I dragged from the bush with our truck LOL I cut 3/4" plywood in a circle, filled the tire with sand/rocks and then screwed the plywood onto the tire.
I've made a cowboy curtain, wooden bridge, stairs, I put scarecrows (my grandsons had made for me) out in the arena and my mare had a fit LOL her son who was 3 last year walked in and proceded to rip one apart LOL

My horses are the joy in my life.....

I just used craft paint, not sure how it will hold up. I bet Sharpie markers would work great too.
