Anyway now to the problem. He responds really well to challenges and new activities but it is winter and my facilities are VERY limited(a field that is often too wet to ride, a round pen, long stretch of dirt road, and trails). He is behaving well and I am out of ideas to keep him entertained. Without new challenges, he gets restless and either his spookiness comes back or he turns into a zombie.
For the natural horseman people, he is a Left brained extrovert.
He has an old injury and cannot jump anymore, I am working toward high level dressage. He can pilaf, canter pirouette, leg yield at canter and trot...(not perfectly but well for my skill level)
My main focus right now is improving our flying lead changes but I can only work on this for about 10 minutes at a time before he gets either bored or frustrated.
I need activity ideas, training ideas, new things to teach or my favorite ride will lose his mind again.
