Now the dog and pony show can actually include the pony. Or horse.

Horse Agility is “an up-and-coming horse activity that is gaining popularity,” says Janine Wittach, owner of Cherry Lane Equine. At this event, the riderless horse responds to its owners commands and navigates an obstacle course. It “creates a curiosity and obedience in a horse” as well as a strong relationship between horse and owner.
