Exercise Ideas

I just started working at a new barn and I need a few ideas of what to do. I am exercising out of shape horses. I don't have a big area to use just a small indoor. I do a lot of ground work. But I am drawing a blank on riding exercises. It is big enough for w/t/c. I don't know just give me some stuff to get the horses thinking. Thanks :]

TONS and TONS of transitions. Like walk the short end of the ring, and then trot the long walls, or trot the short walls, canter the long walls, etc etc. But make sure that when you do the transitions you keep yur leg on them, especially for the downward transitions. Don't let them fall apart. Keep your leg to push them through them. Other than that, circles, serpentines, figure eights, bending work, lenthening, shortening. Good luck!!!

Lots of softening and bending. Especially for out of shape horse's.
