When working them hard isn't possible then I like doing as Kiwigirl suggested. I actually like doing that anyway but sometimes it's nice to work the horse hard and it teaches other good things too.

There's nothing like the Rockies in the springtime... Nothing like the freedom in the air... And there ain't nothing better than draggin calves to the fire and there's nothing like the smell of burning hair. -Brenn Hill

When I am out riding generally we are moving it along at a good clip so standing still isn't really an issue. It is in those times when I want to stop and chat to someone on the road or at their gate that 'keep those feet moving where you want them' system really comes into its own. Other wise it is work, work, work. And yes, when we do take a rest break Phoenix can stand still but she needs to be pretty sweaty to do it.

LOL, i like all your suggestions. it will probably take a combo of all of the above to get the message across. mostly, yes we work work work. but there's times at events, or like kiwigirl said to talk to a neighbor, or listening to the instructor that feet still is a must. i will let you know our progress, and appreciate all your help!
