  • Those horses that are too small to or those that can’t be ridden because of physical problems
  • Those who can’t ride because of physical challenges
  • Those that may have a fear of riding after an accident
  • Building emotional and mental fitness¬†

Benefits for the Handler

  • Great way to get exercise
  • Build a deeper bond between you and your horse
  • Family affair
  • Builds your confidence
  • Problem solving skills


The competition
Any equine can do horse agility from miniature horses to drafts even mules and donkeys. You can compete in your own back yard. There are different levels of competition and different divisions. The only tack you will need is a halter and lead rope. Don’t have a horse then borrow one from a friend. All you have to do is setup the obstacle course for that month and video tape yourself going through the course. After that you then upload your video to your favorite video site. No more traveling to shows and spending lots of money on classes, stall fees, motels, eats or high fuel bills. Get your best friend out of the pasture and start practicing you will be glad you did.

I will soon be offering competitions in person and online so keep checking back as you won’t want to miss what I have to offer.
