Have the trail obstacles
you have always wanted!

Even if you don’t have ideas, have too many ideas, 

don’t know the correct dimensions, have little time or money, 

or even limited space.

 

…or if you just don’t know where to start!

Trail Obstacles are proven to help develop confident horses and riders!

Are you ready to have your own Trail Course?

STOP Googling and START Building

You have looked online and seen all the pictures and ideas for trail obstacles. It looks like they are having so much fun!

You want your own trail course, but you don’t know…

  • Where to start
  • The correct dimensions
  • Will it hold my horse?
  • How to build it

 

The problem? There are some cool ideas online, however, many are too heavy to move, the wrong size, not strong enough, unsafe, flimsy or are just not “horse proof”.

Have you wasted time and energy wanting a trail course and researching what you should build? But you still don’t know where to start?

Relax, there is an easier way.

  • Imagine knowing exactly what to build and how to build it.
  • Imagine having plans simple enough for a inexperienced builder to follow or just right for giving to your husband or friend (who knows nothing about trail obstacles) to build.
  • Imagine having a trail course of your own in a short amount of time.

Training with Trail Obstacles creates a braver, confident, and more willing horse.

Trail Obstacles also:

  • Help increase rider confidence.  
  • Improve the relationship with your horse by practicing your use of timing and feel.
  • Give you a way to measure your progress.

Would you like to impress your friends (or clients), so they all want to come and ride?

Over the last 15 years, I have done the trial and error, the testing, 

the building, the setup, the moving and the hauling of obstacles.

I’ve already tried different dimensions, kinds and styles.

I have worked with over 600 horses using trail obstacles and have put on over 100 Trail Rider Challenges.

Trai Rider Challenge
Trail Obstacle Clinic

Teaching foundation horsemanship applied to trail obstacles has been my life for the last 15 years. I have a large trail course at home, setup at various horse expos, facilitate lots of clinics, and Trail Rider Challenge events. 

Over the years, I have learned what works.

Even though I can setup over 75 obstacles at one time, I have a time-tested core set that I use over and over again. This set is efficient. It is useful for all the core areas that need practice: crossing, through, maneuvers, immobility, despooking and more advanced obstacles. All of the fundamentals of training with trail obstacles.

When I teach at clinics and present at expos, people often ask me how to build trail obstacles and/or take pictures of mine. Some ladies even send their husbands over with a tape measure.

So, I decided to write it all out for you.

*EBook or Print Option

“Simple” means the item can be easily purchased or constructed with basic tools (hammer, drill, skill saw) and basic construction skills. These items are easily portable and great for your own yard or barn, as well as enjoying with your riding friends.

CHAPTER 1: Building Trail Obstacles for Horses

If you have been around a horse very long, you understand if a horse can break it, it will. This guide provides you with sound, time tested advice and ideas for trail obstacles.

CHAPTER 2: Materials Details & Tools List for Trail Obstacles

Materials, a list of tools, and finish recommends so you know you need and can get started quickly.

CHAPTER 3: Classifying Trail Obstacles: Kinds & Groups of Trail Obstacles

Trail Obstacles fall in to a few categories /groups of items by the foundation skills used to complete the obstacle. I label these groups KINDS: Crossing Obstacles, Manuevers, Immobility, DeSpooking, and Advanced. This is how we talk about trail obstacles when we are using them with our horse.

When we are building trail obstacles they are divided into “Sections of Obstacles”. This refers to the parts/pieces/building materials we need to build obstacles. In the construction content, you will find the obstacles arranged in sections of similar components for building.

CHAPTER 4: Detailed Instructions for Building and Creating a Trail Course

Each section of Obstacles gives you detailed obstacle ideas including how to build, illustrations and dimensions.

Sections include:

      1. Crossing Obstacles
      2. Obstacles with Uprights
      3. Obstacles with Group Poles
      4. Despooking Items & Things to Carry
      5. More Fun Obstacles
