As Promised... pictures and a video from the clinic

Here we are getting ready to open the rope gate

Here's Brett & Flash opening the gate

The balloon popping obstacle.  See the pointy stick in Brett's hand?

The pole turning thing.  We had a lot of trouble with this one.  Video below...


Brett going into the scary flapping car wash... Jackson not sure.

Brett and Flash did fine.  You know we didn't...


Here's a picture taken just before Jackson charged forward, breaking the obstacle and taking the line of yellow streamers with him/us:


That's Brett to the right, looking on in horror... or fascination... not sure.  You can see the yellow streamers wrapping around Jackson's head.  Poor horse - no wonder he freaked!

And here's the cleanup crew after we wrecked the obstacls.

  2. that looks like a blast. My horse would either be great or we'd still be heading for the hills. :)

  4. That does look fun. There's a couple of ladies who do that here. I believe they're open almost every weekend through late spring and summer. I've had friends go who've said it was a blast...so maybe I'll check it out. Thanks for sharing the photos and video--I thought your horses looked great...and I agree that any horse who got the streamer in its face would probably react the same way. :/
