Some useful (and critical) benefits of teaching your horse Tof and Toh

  • Needed to pass through gates without dismounting, and perform other obstacles without demolishing them.  
  • Teaches, measures, and confirms: Understanding of, and obedience to the outside rein.
    Used to stop a horse drifting and keep them on the line of travel.
  • Teaches, measures, and confirms: Understanding of, and obedience to the leg.  
  • Used to move your horse's hindquarters away from another horse so they don't kick.
    Quite useful if you find yourself having to pony (lead) another horse from yours on a trail ride.  
  • Can avert a runaway when a horse isn't listening to the bridle as they can be turned away from where they're trying to run to.
  • Can be combined to accomplish sidepass.
    Very useful to stop your kneecap from connecting with a tree.
  • Called for in some dressage tests, but also installs the buttons needed to ride straight and bending lines correctly.  
    Useful in a show, and life-saving on a trail.
