Building A Mountain Trail Course
I have heard Mark state many times that training horses is a three legged stool. It is an Art a Science and a gift from God. I think that it is the same for how he builds Mountain Trail Course around the world. His gift is making much more than just an obstacle course for each seems like each one is a piece of art when it is done. You can see many obstacle courses yet most are just that but the ones that Mark has designed are three demensional trail courses which seem to wrap their arms around the horse and rider. It is like great golf courses which draw you into their beauty while at the same time challenge you to your limit.
Mark has decades of experince in the constuction industry plus he is an artist which all plays into why his courses end up durable and nice to look at. Since he is also a horse trainier he has a good idea of what will challenge the horse and rider yet be safe.
If you ever have a chance to ride on one of his courses take the time to do it.

Instructive and informative, the guide breaks down Bolender’s techniques into easy-to-digest pieces. It provides a fascinating journey into the horse’s mind and how its instincts can be used to develop good horsemanship.
