Because of the horse flu in australia I cannot ride my horse out along the roads, or in my neighbours 100 acre paddock, I can't even jump cause mum has her pony where I usually jump, so the only place I can ride is a little place next to my horses paddock where I can do about 2 circles!!! He is getting bored and so am I! Any suggestions of anything different I can do?

Omg that sucks!! Im so sorry

It sounds like its pretty limited... but you can take this time to do some bonding and ground manner work with your horse :) even though its basic stuff, it helps all levels of riders and horses to go over the basics every once in awhile. Also, maybe try and teach your horse a different type of riding to keep him interested- work on dressage or western pleasure or something... idk but basically change it up!!! Your situation is horrible, but since theres nothing you can do about it you might as well take advantage of it in any way you can

That sucks! But at least you can ride your horse. Mine freaks if I get on her. :(

You could try some trick training. Perhaps teaching your horse to bow, or nod its head yes on command. I'm sure there are some good books out there that explain how to do it. It will give you guys some thing to do, and when you’re done you could show all your friends. :P

Thanks KANSAS_TWISTER!! I had a friend who taught her horse to shake hands, was the cutest thing. That is also a great site you posted, saved it to my favs.

Yeah, spend time grooming :)
You're bonding at the same time!
