My horse is bored!
My horse gets bored easily. She also has a short attention span. If I run her around in the round pen for more than six or seven minutes she gets really bored and slows down (I get bored doing that too. :P). Sometimes I don't want to saddle her up if I don't have a lot of time. Other times I have her saddled up but I don't really know what to do. We've gone up into the hills behind her barn (It's fenced in so I can't go on for forever.) I can go into the National Forest, but sometimes I want to run her. Sometimes I go on the road, sometimes I go in the arena, but I don't know what to do with her in the arena besides going around and around. It's not big enough for a barrel pattern, and I don't have three barrels anyways.
I don't really have a relationship with her, which makes me very sad. Are there fun activities I could do with her to bond with her even if I don't have her saddled up? Are there different things I could with her in the arena when I do have her saddled up?
