We practice on just about any obstacle we can find.


Sometimes that means coming off and getting wet


Sometimes it means going thru tunnels


That are perched on Mountain sides

Yep, that mare stumbled on big rock under the water and the rider slide right off.

Sometimes we squeeze through tight spaces


Sometimes we practice on rocks,


We practice crossing bridges


And we practice on boardwalks

The beauty of a trail ride, is the trail ride itself is the obstacle. There is always something along the trail for the horses to deal with. Just take the opportunities to work with your horse as you see the various challenges along the trail. Don't always take the easy way around.

It may be stepping over logs


It may be dropping off steep side hills


Or Scrambling down off ledges


A good trail horse needs to trust the rider and go where you point him. They may think they know the better way, But we as riders should have the better understanding of what the trail holds and which way we should traverse it.

Painted Horse - I always love to see your pictures!!! They are fantastic.

Trail riding is a big obstacle course - depending on where we ride we may have to turn around a small gate with a slim piece of ground to hairpin turn on so we don't fall down a drop off, a few weeks ago the horses went through a turnstile to get out of Cattail Marsh - that was fun stepping over logs, crossing the little bridges, crossing water - all are fun to do and good training for the horses. Every area will have different challenges - get out there and just ride!

Color me jealous! The only obstacle I come across is convincing my horse that everything blocking our path doesn't require a million foot high over jump!

Sometimes you don't even need obstacles, you just need a horse who is a pill.

Rode several miles today over fairly boring terrain and I feel like I ran a marathon! For every step we went forward, I think he did 2 or 3 sideways. It was like riding a tilt-a-whirl. Silly pony!
