    Bored in the round pen

    In the winter the only place I can really ride is in an indoor round pen. I am getting bored just riding around a small area. I have started my off track gelding jumping small raised rails, but cannot think of much more to do. He does not seem to have any interest in a jollyball and I am not very creative. What type of things can I do on the ground to build my relationship with my horse and build his skill set. Please explain any suggestions in detail so I can give them a try.

    Does he know sidepassing or yielding his hindquarters?

    You could work on bomb proofing him. Dessensitizing to tarps, bridges, balloons, streamers, stuffed animals, you name it. Could all be done in a round pen.
    YOu could ground drive him.
    You could teach him to bow.

    I cannot tell the details of these, other folks can fill in.
