Question She has to rest... So what can I do with her?

Something is wrong with my mare's sacroiliac joint, so she can't be worked. Vet allowed her to be outside, but I can't do anything with her, vet says she should move only as much as she wants.

So, which things we can work on, that she doesn't have to use her hind end?

It's RAINING!

teach her tricks, like counting with her front foot, saying yes and no.

Tricks are great as are suppling exersizes. Get some low calorie treat pellets for this. If she ever gets bored consider a jolly ball (if she would play with it) or some thing like a likit holder. lots of stimuli.
