A few months off for abby

it looks like abby will be off for a few months, i've given my daughter control over her but once school starts again she probably wont have time to do that much for her, we're expecting another baby (NOT ABBY BUT ME) and can't ride untill next spring, i know she'll get bord with lunging all the time, i know i can still brake her to cart (dying to do that) and drive her around on the farm while being pregnant, i know a lot of women have had this delema while being pregnant and what to do about there horses...please give me ideas on what do with abby to keep us both sane for the next few months

The best would be to find horse-experienced teenager in neighborhood and ask him/her to ride the horse couple times a week.

Congratulations on the baby news! When are you due? You keeping well? Ahh, makes me all broody.

Like kitten val says, do you know of anyone locally who you trust to ride and work with Abby? Even if its just a couple of days of week?

lol now meg and i have some thing in commin.....due in end of jan beging of feb but feels like next week, that would be great about the teenager but all the kids in town are in the same sports, i tried to loan her out to a ranch for the winter but "she's to small" to handle big work, star is going off in feb to the trainers to be broke so i don't have to worry about him. although my husbands co worker has 4 ruff and tumble boys who would love to ride abby for me, i don't mind leading them around.

Consider long-lining. I find it to be good exercise for the horse, improves the training, and walking around as you circle the horse is actually decent exercise for the human too. Also since you are using your hands to control the horse but are on the ground, it'll give you a good visual of how the horse reacts when you make different movements. I always find it to be a good refresher.
