PJ is shown at his first trail challenge in this photograph. The obstacle challenge was held at Horse Heaven Ranch and hosted by Horsemen of Arkansas. One obstacle required riders to pick the pole and ride to the small circle on the ground. The rider then had to take his horse in a circle around the the pole. Once finished the rider returned the pole to the fence where he got it. One of the reasons we like the trail challenges is there always some obstacles that are simpler than others. PJ is still a relatively young horse and the obstacle allowed him to succeed and gain some confidence.
