"Games" in a western saddle?

Ok so the horse Im riding right now (not at lessons as a favor for the owners) has a brand new western saddle. They don't ride english, which is fine for me because I get english lessons every week.

After we get his problems sorted out (bucking, bolting, and only listens to voice commands on a walk) I would love playing "games" in the saddle. I'm doing some poles with him but those can get boring after a while so I was wondering any little "games" or activites I can do with him? They don't have barrels but they have a large open land behind their house that is flat and has no grass so maybe I can do something there.

Whats your favorite game to do with your horse?

Hi, There are many games you can play to break up the boredom (whether you ride English or Western). Here's a good reference with several games described:

This is a popular Squidoo Lens that describes Fun Horse Training games.

I hope you find it helpful- enjoy your summer.

A saddle is only a saddle. Do whatever you'd normally do. Trot over poles. Basics are still the same

There's a similar thread in english riding, but it's all about the same thing: MAKE IT FUN!! We've played soccer, basketball, and tag. Tag's a good way to liven up a boring trail ride. Just be respectful of non-participating riders
