Rainy Day Activities

It's currently drizzling/raining slightly and Joe doesn't have studs on (heck, Joe doesn't have shoes at the moment) so I can't ride. My horses aren't stabled (rennovations, bugger) so doing anything with them is out.
I was thinking mixing feeds early and cleaning tack but that'll only entertain me for a few minutes.
So does anyone have any ideas on what to do on a rainy day? Share all ideas because they will definitely be accepted =]

I just got done making a hay bag. :)
Before that my sister and I got stuck in the rain riding. We were away from the house and had to spend about 15 min in a downpour to make it back home to the shelter. lol

It has been pouring rain here for the past 3 days thanks to a hurricaine south of us. But I still ride in the rain. Unless its absolutley pouring. Yesterday it was pouring on and off, and after my lesson I was riding with a friend in the arena. We would take the breaks between rain showers to go play in the puddles with our ponies. Only at a walk or trot. Just be safe and don't take your horse through anything you think is dangerous. I LOVE riding in the rain and splashing through puddles. When our pasture floods (And I mean FLOODS, like waist deep water) I ride through it. I know the pasture like the back of my hand, and stay away from the creek which turns into a raging river. But I love riding through the water.

It always takes me more than a few minutes cleaning tack. I guess I'm just slow like that...lol. I'll go ahead and ride or lunge in the rain. I'm like Lonestar, I love it. Sometimes I'll put a poncho on, but usually not. There are other times that I'll take my sketch pad to the barn and work on sketches of them (nothing that I would post on here though).

Haha, I wish I could ride in the rain, but riding in Queensland's black soil without studs or grass is suicide and I don't think Dad'd appreciate me carving up the grass in my dressage arena arena...

Take your saddle and set it on a sturdy saddle rack or a barrel on it's side, cross your stirrups over the saddle and work on posting without stirrups. But I think this would be more focused towards the english riders. But I don't think western wouldn't be able to benefit from it somehow.

Thanks Tempest =] I'll give it a go. That sounds like a really good activity that could be used in a riding school for unmounted lessons.
