Driving Track

Updated: Aug 27, 2019

Yesterday I spent most of the afternoon on my riding lawn mower making myself a driving track with obstacles. I am so happy to have my riding lawn mower back… it didn’t run all last year and I really missed being able to make myself such fun obstacles!

I mowed a nice track around the 10 acre field. I am going to put at least two more obstacles out there as well!


I put in a cones course, complete with a little bridge!

I put in a tires course, which is just like running the barrels!

I have a barrels course:

And then there is the track:

I think we are going to have a lot of fun out there!


Zorro has been feeling grumpy lately. I think he needs a little break from the long drives and this is a way to mix things up for him.


I am going to take the Skid Steer out there tomorrow and fill in the holes and dips we encountered today to smooth things out a bit. We did trot and canter but it was a bit bouncy! LOL!


I am going to add two more obstacles out on the track, another cones course and ?? I’m not sure what the other will be but it will be FUN!
