    Default Horse agility?

    Anyone ever seen it? Done it?

    Saw this while browsing amazon.com http://www.amazon.com/The-Horse-Agil...ef=pd_sim_b_42

    Which made me google it. Came up with this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DbrEn...3BCA4306A0117A and a website http://www.thehorseagilityclub.com/

    I've seen minis compete in agility classes, but not a full size horse. Looks like it might be fun to do with a horse who is not rideable for some reason, but still needs a job.
    It is only through labor and painful effort, by grim energy and resolute courage, that we move on to better things.

    I am reading the book and find it interesting and the techniques used are good ol' basic correct horse handling, learning to read the horse's body language and how to use yours to get the horse to move away or toward you and to respect your space. Moving on to obstacles may be a fun way to occupy your horse when it is to darn nasty to ride!
