This competition is not as physically demanding as some might be.  Any old, good minded, steady, well trained horse, mule, or donkey, will do well.
 
The competition consists a set of stations or obstacles that represent things or situations that you might run into on the farm, out on the trail,  in town, in a parade, or at the fair.
 
In time I will sort through and post photos representing most of the obstacles or stations. 
 
Each participent will be judged on each station or obstacle.
There will also be a time allotment for each station and a total time allotment.
 
The "start" will be to lead your horse (or mule) in between two logs.  
 
Possible stations may be:
Saddle your horse.  Bridle your horse.  Pick up each foot and slap the bottom.  Mount up.  Back out of the logs.  Cross a tarp. Cross a bridge. Check the mail.  Through a gate.  Cross water.  Put on and take off a slicker.  Carry a flag.  Help park a car.  Cross a sprinkler. Pass by a fogger.  Cross a teeter-totter.  Through a hanging tarp.  Go under a cardboard  half-fallen log.  Pick up "spiderman" out of a baby carrige.  Place him in an empty lawn chair. Take a bottle of water from a person on a running lawmower.  Drag a bucket, turn and pull it to you, lift and dump it. Pass a windmill. Open and umbrella, pass the fogger, and more.
