Stall or Aisle Exercises?

I'm in a frustrating situation and am hoping that some of you may have some ideas.

The horse I have been working with is not mine, but my trainerís horse. I'm the only person who does anything with him because A. He's huge and B. He has issues due to another rider being way too busy with her hands. I live in the city, and the barn is about an hour from where I live so I only get out there once or twice a week =/. The problem right now is that my trainerís barn does not have an indoor arena so I canít really ride him again until April or so when the weather turns. In the meantime Iím riding at another barn that does have an indoor arena so that I can keep my position. Its frustrating because what work I have done with him is now being totally lost. I almost dread the day in April that I have to take him out and start at square one because it hasn't been easy!

I still go out to visit him when I am visiting my own horse, whom I keep at the same barn. She is 26 and Iím retiring her so not having an indoor for her is not a problem. Iím wondering if anyone has any suggestions of things I can do with him in his stall or in the aisle during these winter months that might help us in April? Iím making him stretch and flex his neck with treats and would like to do a few other things if anyone can think of any?

Thanks in advance!

Using a 12' lead "send" him places... between you and a wall.. in the stall small circles with lots of direction changes... this can all be done in a 12X12 box stall

I like to stand on the ground and reach up and put my "hands" in "riding" position and flex from there and BACK UP from there

winter exercises

You could work on leading, lowering his head, picking up his hooves, standing and tying. You could also work on your skills and practice braiding. I am glad you posted this question, because it reminds me of some things that I could work on.
