Laughter and games are a hallmark of Turning Point sessions. But behind every giggle is a challenge designed to build life skills, train muscles or increase confidence. The colorful TPR game room is where it all begins.
Pool Noodles play a big role at Turning Point even though there’s not a pool in sight. They are firm enough for “spelling” during warm-ups to give riders a nice gross muscle workout. And they are soft enough that they don’t bother the horses if a rider’s aim is slightly off.
Noodles extend a rider’s reach in a lively game of freeze tag. And they can be the source of brain teasers when riders must name a food the same color as the dive rings they are threading on noodles.
