We’ve been working hard on the trail park almost every day since designer Mark Bolender left! Now we’ve got landscaping implemented, ground stabilized, and a good deal of the smaller obstacles built.
Check out our photos so far! (Click them to make them bigger.)
We’ve still got a lot on our list: implementing the pump and pipes for our amazing, rideable, recirculating water features with three ponds, two waterfalls, and 2 flowing 5′ wide rivers for horses to walk through or cross via bridge. We still have our larger bridges and swinging bridges to build, the teeter totter, fountains, gates, step throughs, the patio for our viewing area.
We wanted to give our boarders the chance to play on what’s built while we finish the rest, so we are pre-opening to them this weekend with an orientation. We will be taking a few select haul-ins, by invitation only, as we complete the course. Let us know if you want to be on the list for this.
<< Here’s a worksheet of the obstacles that we currently have and those that are in progress.
The trail park has been such a great asset to the farm already. It’s a rewarding and entertaining place to work young horses in-hand. The terrain features have been great for cross training with my dressage horses to develop engagement, lift, and power. Everyone who enters the trail park leaves with a smile, greater self confidence, and a proud and relaxed horse. I’m thrilled at the benefits it’s providing to both english and western horses of all ages and skill levels.
We can’t wait to share this fabulous place with the rest of the horse community! Stay tuned for events and access and if you haven’t already, sign up for email updates below so you don’t miss any opportunities to enjoy it with your horse!
