    Change up regular riding routine?

    I just recently got a new horse (APHA 17yr old Gelding) and all we usually do is walk, trot, lope around the field. He does gaming, but I don't want to work him so much on patterns when he does know the pattern. What are some things I can do with him? What types of things should I work on? Thanks in advance for your advice.

    I trail ride and ride fields in my area and in the round pen. I recently got some cones and set them up in all kinds of patterns. It helps to break up the same old same old as we ride daily unless wind over 30mph. It also helps with reinforcing leg cues. You can find tons of patterns for cones on the internet

    Ask him to do things that will get his mind thinking, such as canter to stop, trot to stop etc. get him to move his shoulder and back legs over. And just like womak29, cones are very useful!
