Time Managment

I have three mares and it's been a while since they've been ridden. The weather is beautiful and my kids and I are wanting to do a little riding around the house. Plus my 6 year old daughter joined the local 4H's Cloverbud group and is interested in the horse shows(she has a halflinger mix pony). My question is; there are three of them and one of me, what ground exercies would you suggest to get them going again and how does one person manage "training" time with mulitple horses? I consider myself a beginner, but have worked with a trainer/riding instructor. My facilties are limited, but both my kids are at school all day, so I have some free time. Thank you for your input!

I would alternate between the three mares, riding one each day, until you feel safe putting the kids on them. Then, as long as the kids are riding them semi-frequently, focus on getting the halflinger mare ready for your 6 year old. That way everyone is treated fairly, you aren't stretched too thin, and your 6 year old gets her horse prepped in good time.

First you have to look at how much available time you have. You will plan differently if you only have time for one a day versus all three a day. If your time is limited then try to rotate so that they all get some time. If possible try to at least handle them all once a day even if its just grooming and a reminder of nice leading manners.
