PDF + Online version


BACK-THROUGH OBSTACLES is for you who are used to the common back-through obstacles such as the L, and would love to get some new challenges.

Some of the exercises can be done on the same obstacle. Being able to ride alternative routes in the same figure is very practical, since you do not have to dismount to re-arrange the poles during the training.

Regardless of discipline, back-up obstacles are both very useful and fun. It trains your and the horse’s composure, to just move one small step at a time and to do it strategically. The horse develops his body awareness, and you learn how small changes in your seat affect the horse.

If you are a trail show rider, this E-book will be a true gem! It contains different and somewhat unusual back-through obstacles with both poles and cones.


You’ll get both an online version and a PDF. Upon purchase, you get a login to a page where you can download the PDF file. You can also view the entire book directly in your browser on that page.
