We play certain "games" in lessons. They aren't so much fun games though so much as sick torture methods.
One is a race of sorts. Start at one end of the arena, pick up the lope, and race to the end. Only the catch? Last person to the finish wins. And you can't break gait.
We also practice working pairs. This is like drill and dressage mixed with two people to music. You have to stay together and perform a pattern.
Sometimes, she will have us hold a piece of ribbon and if we break it we're in trouble. Lol
Another game she plays is for the barrel racers. You're supposed to come flying in the arena from the runway mach 5 whipping and spurring all the way, then trot. Yes. It's hard. We do it every now and then and Selena does the little jiggy hoppy thing but the running is fun and is good for your horse to find that sweet spot of soft downward transitions.
I got more but those are the ones I actually kinda like doing haha
