Photo Challenge: 19 Horses Tackling Obstacles

“The true test of a champion is not whether he can triumph but whether he can overcome obstacles.”  ~ Garth Stein

In this week’s photo challenge, we requested photos of horses taking on obstacles. You, dear readers, submitted photos of your horses doing everything from facing bubble machines and tarps to conquering rings of fire and overcoming their hesitation about the “fan man” (AKA one of those dancing balloon-things commonly seen outside of car dealerships). Here are 19 photos of some very brave horses!
