Question Things to do with a coming yearling?

I have a filly who is 11 months old, so she's too young to lunge and stuff yet.

She stands still and lets me do whatever I want to her (grooming, bathing, messing with her feet), and we're working on being calm with the clippers.

I don't want to do the same thing every time with her, so do you guys have any ideas for what I could do with her?

I'll probably start teaching her tricks and maybe some basic showmanship, but what else?

I just got my yearling and were working on manners right now and anything I can find that's scary. He's fairly levelheaded so it doesn't take him long to get over it yesterday it was a blanket hanging on a fence and blowing in the wind. Today im taking a grocery bag. I also have started walking him around the field especially away from the herd. He's not especially herd bound or anything but I figure we could both use the exercise and its fun.

Young horses is where I'm a real fan of Parelli. I LOVE working with them and playing the 7 games, in addition to teaching all the other skills a show horse will need.

Along with what others have posted I work a lot on getting them used to things being above their heads, ropes being flung all over them (which then turns into blankets and light, light, light weight equipment) and just getting them used to being comfortable with anything I throw at them. When my baby was this age we worked a lot on throwing ropes over him, under him, and just getting him used to having things move quickly around him.

If she is very well halter broke, you can pony her off another horse. Once she is fine doing that around the barn, and if you are competent, you can pony her out on trail rides

If you have access to a trailer, I recommend getting her out as much as possible. Far easier to get them used to the world when they're young and not so big!
