What are some fun things to do with your horse?

Hi
I was wondering if you had any fun ideas on what I could do with my horse.(riding,games, etc.) Can't wait to see what you come up with!

If you do English, do some 'western'. Set up some 'barrels' and attempt to race around them. Lots of fun, but you have to go pretty slow. Poor English horses don't know what the heck your asking them to do.

Lol, Twist and I did our first Gymkhana this weekend! He was SO not sure what to think of me carrying 2 cups full of water down the length of the arena and then dump them into a cup!

All of the speed courses are fun, I also like setting up little jumps and obstacle courses. Just mix it up with random stuff.

I was looking into teaching my horse to jump. He hasn't done it before. How would I go about teaching him? Is it hard?

I am teaching my neww horse to be ridden with only a rope around her neck...i would only ever do this in an enclosed area. I tied a leadrope around my horses neck (NOT TIGHT!!!) and hopped on bareback, and taught her that when I pulled the rope back and released(exactly like half halting) that meant stop, and when I pressed to rope against the right of her neck that meant go left and so on. Eventually you will be able to canter and maybe even a controlled gallop! This is really fun but I always test my breaks and sterring on the ground first, and make sure your horse is used to being ridden bareback. Try to do this in a very familiar place with your horse where he usually works so that he knows that he still should listen. But you know your horse so you chooe hwere he would learn best :)

Thanks for sharing. That sounds fun.

Two words: Broomstick Polo.

You need at least one other rider and a horse, two brooms, and a ball...like a soccer ball or basket ball.

The polo sounds fabulous!

We used to play tag all the time when I was a kid; even out on the trails, if we found a sand pit, or open area the game would be on.

I also like to do games like one barrel pennant, barrels, jumping figure 8, etc...I mainly will do these after a good session, as that is something 'fun' to do afterwards. Basically if you have poles, jumps or barrels or cones laying around, you can devise just about any kind of game you can imagine.
