    Hey everyone! First off i'm an 18 year old girl who has not really been around horses all my life. I really got more involve with horses back in 2009 when I got my OTTB. Well back in February I was ordered not to ride my horse by my orthropedic suregon due to back problems. It's was fine and dandy during the cold months to just feed my horse and check over him and what not but now with the warmer weather I want to do some more ground excercises. I've basically done natural horsemanship, he great on a lunge, knows voice commands, all that stuff but anyway I just want to know if you guys know anymore excercises I can work on with my horse. Also I've done de spooking and everything. I've done a lot of stuff in the almost 3 years I've had him.

    Trail walks. Take him out on the trail in-hand. He gets exercise, you get's a win-win!

    Maybe try to teach him showmanship. It will give you both something to learn (if you don't know how to do it) and it will get you both some exercise with out having to ride him. :)

    Practice showmanship.! Or teach him to do different tricks. Like bowing and stuff. Teach him to follow you and do different stuff just by your body signals.

    Have you tried any in hand work with him? You can do many of the dressage lateral movements at the walk from the ground with just a bridle. There's a good book called "right from the start" that explains it. It would go a long way toward starting to build up your horse's topline for when you can start riding again.
