OBSTACLES & CHALLENGES

One of the ultimate experiences that will test your horsemanship, leadership, communication, control and confidence, is performing groundwork and riding through obstacles. Everything from simple log jumps to the Cowboy Curtain will test your connection and partnership. Nothing feels quite like maneuvering around, over, under and through an Obstacle Challenge Course on a Horse!

Obstacles and Skill Challenges are a great way to take your partnership to new levels of FUN. Communication, Control and Confidence are needed to accomplish the task of negotiating the obstacle or performing the maneuver. There are many “moving parts” that need to be properly managed in order to be successful and therein lies the challenge. Obstacles and skill challenge require the horse and human to work in harmony together, with clarity, trust and partnership. Here at Pine Ridge Dude Ranch we have a nine-obstacle challenge course that can really test the horse and the rider. Our Cowboy Horsemanship III Clinic focuses on all the skills a Horse/Human team will need in order to handle these challenging obstacles. Participants in Cowboy Horsemanship III should be true “Intermediate” level horse-people and be ready to experience a clinic that is unique in the industry!
