If you have cattle a lot of the moves are the same but it gives it gives your horses purpose to the moves and something different to look at.

I've never cowed any of my horses but I've thought about it. My mare's pleasure bred but is very easily bored, she was unhappy going around the ring low and slow. I do reining with her now and she gets very into the maneuvers and is much happier. I did Warhorse Challenge with my Araloosa gelding after I retired him from the pleasure ring, but our WC group disbanded so I haven't done it in a year or two. Now that I think about it, Warhorse and working equitation would be right down Nala's alley too - she loves working with a purpose and will play all over a trail course if I let her. I'm sure some others at my barn would enjoy a break from railwork, too!

Thank you for the information and videos! I'm all about improving agility, athleticism and partnership with my horses and this is a great way to do it. Looks like I'll be breaking out the trail obstacles again soon! :)
