Question Anyoe have any ideas of fun things to do when riding?

Me and my sister have been riding together lately and I was wondering if anyone had any fun things they like to do while riding that we could try!!! We can't jump so it can't be anything to do with that!!!

What isn't fun in the saddle! Lol
You can look into different disciplines online and watch videos/read articles to teach your horses different skills and maneuvers from different disciplines.
If you have cones, poles, barrels or anything really, you can set up obstacle courses that your horses will have to use different skills to get through.
You can go on trail rides (if trails are available) and even train out on the trail using trees and such.
You can try to master riding "side saddle" (it's harder than it looks!) or even while standing on your horse's back, if you feel daring.
Since you have two people you can practice synchronized riding, try to keep your horses totally even with each other and create patterns to go through together, utilizing all of the gaits.

Just a few ideas off the top of my head. Best of luck to you!

Ride a buck is always fun. Put a dollar bill between your thigh and the horse while bareback and see who loses theirs first. Winner keeps money. If both of you can do all gaits, or all gaits that you'd be comfortable with, without losing the money then move it down to your calf, then heel, etc. Obviously this only works with decently broke horses, but as well as being fun, it improves your balance too!

Red light/green light is fun if you have a few more riders with you.

Also, lose the race is very fun. The only rules are, you have to canter from point A to point B, and get there last to win. If you break gait, you lose.

Wow, everything sounds fun. I just rode bareback for the first time in years today! And that was so... much fun definitely needs balance! If you have a few more riders you can set up a treasure hunt type of thing. Someone makes up little riddles and hides them in places. Each riddle takes you to the next one and eventually leads to the treasure and you can do it all on horseback. Or so one of you isn't out because you know where it is. Have one of your parents or somebody make it up and hide the riddles for you.
