During agility training, the ponies playfully familiarize themselves with a variety of obstacles. First, they are allowed to sniff them up and down. Then, the ponies are carefully led over, through and around them. For some obstacles, the ponies need to muster up a lot of courage. At such times it is important to be patient and lovingly encourage them. Fun fact: Agility training promotes the confidence and sure-footedness of ponies.
