ing a location for your obstacle training
course, choose one with a barrier. A fence or
arena wall provides a physical barrier and a
stop zone for safety. Select a training site with
low traffic. A quiet area is less distracting and
can improve your ability to focus. Choose an
area with good footing. Look for a location
that provides a level grade and good traction.
Stay away from slippery or hard surfaces.
    Designate a safe zone – When construct-
ing your obstacle course, leave a space where
there are no obstacles. We call this, “The Safe
Zone” It’s a place to go and regroup when
you are having difficulty. You and your horse
can take a deep breath and relax before you
try again.
    Selecting obstacles – When selecting
                           obstacles for your
                           training course,
                           choose safe and
                           durable items. Your
                           horse should be able
                           to safely step on the
                           item without break-
ing it or injuring himself. Minimize the risk of
injury by closely inspecting your obstacles.
Look for sharp edges that could cut your
horse. Remove any strings or ropes that could
entangle your horse. We like items that are
lightweight and easily moved. This makes
setting up and dismantling your course easy.
Obstacles that you can stack, fold or roll up
are convenient to store.
    Constructing obstacles – A simple way to
make an obstacle course is to use items you
already have on hand. A tarp on the ground
is a good obstacle to begin with. Use ground
poles to hold the tarp in place. Ground poles
also provide a pathway or guide to walk
through. You
