I had made a bridge for my wife Betty to ride her horse across. It may sound silly but some horses get spooked walking on real wooden bridges and that can be quite exciting. Her horse Mac takes it all in stride and likes walking across it. The top is red wood and the red planks are treated 2×6’s. The whole structure is build on two wooden pallets to get it off of the ground some. Thanks for looking. ;0)

Looks like a great wooden structure for training on.

I wonder what your dog has spotted?

Great training aid. Certainly best for horses to learn the sound and feel of wood in the back yard before trying it on an actual bridge.

A very practical object that one who does not work with horses would not realize to be quite an important tool.

Nope! No point arguing with Mom. If the horse likes I’m sure that she does to. Nice work.
