Quick! What should i do?

Hey guys, so I'm going riding reallllyyy soon and I want to know what types of games/things can we do? We always either do poles or barrels or we just ride around the arena in circles walking/trotting/loping. What types of games can two people play on horseback? Western please :))))

He may knock a barrel, but he will never break my heart

One that I just created is you could place cones on your arena (like all around) and see who can get the most cones. Or race from one side of the arena to the other at walk, trot, and canter (it's kinda interesting at the walk).

my kids used to love to play tag.and when kids that have never rode before came over,my kids would walk,trot,and lope beside them talking the whole time to keep them from getting scared or nervous.before long,they would be in the big arena playing tag.

Live each day as if it is your last for tomorrow is not promised!

I vote for tag too. My kids loved it. I even still have fun with it as an adult.

Ride a buck:
sit on a dollar bill with half sticking out and have someone tell you to walk,trot,canter ecetera! then whoever loses their dollar loses and whoever keeps it the longest wins!

flag race:
have barrels set up and on the first and 2nd barrels put buckers and use a flag in the first bucket and run around the outside of the barrels then drop it in the bucket on the 2nd barrel!

have an egg on a spoon and go around the arena at a walk,trot,etc. and whoever keeps the egg the longest wins

saddle bag race:
have one person at the top of the arena holding saddle bags and another person running up the side and grabbing the saddle bags from the person, or you can have the person at the top with no saddle bags then have the 2nd person run up with the saddle bags and hand them to the person at the top. then the person at the top runs back withthe saddle bags!

I love my horse -Cisco!!
