Speck Practicing A Little Tarp Training

Crossing a Tarp

Like a lot of trainers, we give our  future trail horses for sale at the end of our two-year training program  practice going over tarps on the ground. Here Speck is going back and forth over the tarp and doing a few drills with the tarp mixed into the exercises.

The tarp doesn’t have to be real big, just something that makes noise and feels unusual to the horse’s feet. These types of drills are used sporadically along with lots of long rides on the trails to build confidence.
