Punkstank that's an awesome little course you've made for your horses.

Thanks for the information on clicker training. I'm going to look it up and see if I can apply it to mine. I've trained my little colt stud to do some doggy type tricks like fetch and stand on his back legs with treats so I wonder if he would respond to the clicker training. I've never used it on dogs either and its always nice to have another tool in the toolbox.

This can assist you with both big and little horses just change the poles you use as wood can hurt little ones and pvc can break on bigger horse easier I also found cover pvc in a foam added a little more protection

I wouldn't use PVC pipes. I've seen it teach many a horse, mine included, to just barrel through jumps because the pipes will just bounce off their legs. Go with wooden poles.

Wooden poles, definitely! They're a bit more pricey, but it's worth the safety aspect...not to mention they just work more effectively xD

I bought 8 wooden fence posts (4x4 rounded edges) theyre flat sides but the corners are round. They're 12feet long and $4 each. I like them like that because they will roll if pushed but will stop rolling fairly quickly, so the horse is less likely to be tangled up if it falls. Also the lighyer wood is better if for minis, they also make heavier versions of these fence posts that I think wouldnt be knocked off easily enough. I got mine at home depot, im sure any similar store would sell an equivalent.
