Creative Training Excercises

Share your own unusual techniques/excercises! What you do, what you're working on, and what you'd like to do! (You can post tricks too ;))

With Velvet-
-ride her with a blindfold on (her blind, not me!)
-ride with only a a string/rope looped around her neck
-multitasking on trail rides (sit backwards/sideways, talking to other people)
-she comes with me into the (very crowded)garage, up the steps and through the human door :)
-I can throw around and bounce a big ball off of her , I would love to have a huge one like
-i can walk her up to something, or put something in front of her (overturned bucket, steps, stump, anything) and say "step" and point to her foot and she puts her foot on the thing
and all of the things i'm forgetting :roll:

I accidentally posted the thread before I finished (:roll:), this is what was left off-

-and leading everywhere with my just my hand under her chin, no halter

What we're working on-

-riding without anything, not even a loop around her neck
-lots more tricks
-straddling her neck while her head is down, and her raising her head and sliding me onto her back :) (on command)
