Practice & Competition


To walk calmly and confidently over.

How do I do this obstacle ?

Walk calmly over together

"Send" the equine over

A required halt

Where to start

Incremental steps

Allow investigation with nose and feet

Use the SAFE leading position until your equine is happy and confident walking across

Allow all the time he needs - it must be his decision to take the first step

Start small and increase the size of the tarp as confidence builds


Size 1.5 times the equines length

Ideally your chosen tarp should be thick and durable

Think about

If using outdoors, your tarp made need weighting down with poles and/or cones
