Our group meets for study/education and for ride days.
On ride days it has been popular to:
- make trail/western riding patterns and pretend to be doing an actual class like at a show (leaders judge and give verbal feedback)..the kids really liked it.
-run a western/english pleasure or equitation class, and have pairs of students practice judging the class and giving reasons (works better for the older kids to judge). Leaders can join in the class :)
-we will be doing some trail riding this summer At our non-horse meetings we:
-are going to make jump standards
-made mounting blocks
-played bridle in a bag (we took apart bridles, put them in a back, and then timed the girls putting them back together)
-made board games to study nutrition, care, etc.
