I guess my question is why? This would be like asking your elderly grandmother to do "some fun new things, Grandma."
Your pony is elderly, and I fail to see why this is necessary. Let her enjoy herself by not having to be put through something that seems more designed to relieve your boredom than hers. Get yourself a hobby in other words, and let her alone.
Horses don't stand around thinking, "Gee, I'm just so bored."
My pony might be elderly, but she's an active kind of horse, and everyone thinks she's younger than her actual age. I'm not in ANY WAY
pushing her hard, when I notice she's not up to something (that I personally originally wanted to do) I immediately stop and don't push her.
I posted her age in this thread exactly so that people reading it could take notice and not come up with games intended for younger horses.
I do not want her to be in any way misused or worn out, or unhappy.
I did NOT ask for hard training advice, I wrote in my post that I wanted to do something that BOTH OF US obviously think is fun, just something that we can do together to have a good time together.
I'm not interested in making a big training scheme, not for her nor for me.
So what you're telling me - a person that you don't even know a clue about - is "Leave your horse alone, , stop doing ANYTHING with her, that includes grooming and giving snacks, because your horse is much better off without you."
That hurts me.
Obviously you have completely misunderstood my intentions here.
To you others:
Thanks, I will look into it later, I got my nerve out a bit here now......
