We took advantage of the inner part of the track system and made a trail obstacle course. Most of the obstacle ideas came from various trail trials and NATRC rides. Here's a slide show of the obstacles from different angles and one of Harley and I working the rope gate.
After building the fence line for the mini track system, we put in 10 tons of pea gravel. The horses have to walk over the pea gravel to get to their hay and back again to get to their water. The pea gravel helps stimulate and support the back of their feet. I've seen it also help them naturally exfoliate the dead sole material when it's ready to come off. As as you can see from the video, Harley loves to roll in it.
