Interesting training. What do you guys think? Is anyone doing this with their horses already???

Yes, I am. We have a clinician come to our farm once a month who uses the TRT methodology. It's really made a difference for my horse. I follow Tristan on Facebook and he also has an online course. It's really interesting and it works well.

Seems like this is essentially what Bill does. Lovely horse!

I work with my horse with many obstacles - umbrellas, pool noodles wrapped in Christmas garland, flags,tarps, cones, whirly gigs, you name it, the list goes on and on. I change it up constantly, once he gets used to something, I change how it looks and it's a brand new obstacle. Not only is it extremely beneficial to the horse, it's lots of fun!

CDE, that is awesome! Does your Morgan take to it right away or does it take a while to build confidence? You are so lucky to have someone come to your barn to work with who practices this method. :-)

iwish, I love your idea. That is an awesome idea. I think I'll start a journal with all my fun stuff and training in general for my young horse. Will be fun as he comes along.

I have to say I was a bit worried about the tarp. I a corner of a nail in the shoe caught in it it could have been a disaster. So am I worrying too much?

jc, you are right. Bill has been doing all of this. Bill has been onto something all along. There is a reason why his horses are all bombproof. HARD WORK!! And yet fun for him too.

Now I just want some nice weather so I'm not to cold to get out there with them! lol...

My horse wears 4 shoes and knock-on-wood I've never had a nail catch the tarp, though as we know anything could happen! Of course my horse picks up the tarp with his mouth and throws it around if I let him LOL

Besides the clinics we do, we also have a weekly groundwork session to practice. 4 or 5 of us set up "obstacles" around the indoor and rotate through them. We change it up each time and include umbrellas, tarps, small jumps, pool noodles, flags, yoga ball, plastic bag on a whip, clappers, and anything else that might get a reaction. The key is changing it up all the time so the horses aren't bored with it. We use a tarp every time and not once has it got caught on a shoe - including winter shoes with studs. The tarp has ripped a bit.

What is really helpful during these sessions is if another horse is reacting to something, you can work through that with your horse (think of a warm up ring). Also we can purposely make noises (which my horse is sensitive to). It's great having a few folks in the session as you have assistance to get the desired effects.
