Topic: Using obstacles can act as a positive stress or a negative stress for the body depending on how the body is balancing during the challenge. Outside obstacles, maneuvers or patterns to not necessarily create or enhance balance, they mostly challenge the current use of the body. While the challenge can act to facilitate a change of use, the challenge can also act to reinforce poor use or dysfunctional with added stress and strain. It all depends on HOW we and our horses balance during the challenge.
