If you go to enough of these trail obstacles challenges, you start to notice a recurring theme. Over and over you hear riders saying, “I can’t figure it out. He’s never afraid of the tarp! We cross a tarp all the time.” You always hear it right after the horse looks at the nice blue tarp identical to the one used at home.
The tarp you see here at the Bad Girls Trail Riding Confidence Clinic is actually our tarp. When we started across on one of the horses we brought for demonstration purposes, he stopped and looked at it like he had never seen it before. It was his tarp! LOL! It wasn’t any trouble convincing him to cross it, just funny how the very tarp he probably crossed 15 times before without blinking was something new. It always makes you laugh, whether it’s your horse or someone else’s.
