    Keeping it fun

    Hello! I am new to the forum, but enjoy reading all of the advice from different horsey people!

    I have a 6 year old paint gelding. I don't get to ride as often in the week as I would like, but want to keep him in shape, so I have been working him on the ground and in the round pen. This keeps him from being too pushy.

    Does anyone have any exercises that they could share so I can keep things from getting boring?

    Welcome to the forum! =]

    I would just mix things up as often as possible. Go on a walk around the block or through the trails, set up an obstacle course to lead him through, take him on the lawn to graze and brush him. Teach him a trick like bowing, or nodding his head. Even if you only have a few different things to do, if you go back and forth from one to the other each day you work with him, it should keep him busy enough.

    Play with a ball.......

    Jumping barrels:

    Set up some squeezes:

    Be Careful though this is what can happen.....LOL

    Thanks G and K, I have been looking for more stuff to do with my guy too and your pics were a fun way to help me remember new things to add to the list.
