Can you put your hands on a surcingle and long reins? Ground driving would be much easier on her joints and WAY less boring than going around in circles.

You can put poles down or a line of cones and weave her through them.

I have been using a surcingle and 2 lunge lines when I've been ground driving her. Is it bad that the surcingle is too big for her? Like I can stick a fist in between it and her? It doesn't slip around since it has pad sorta things on either side of her withers but it does have a tendency to slide back...

Where she's kept right now doesn't have cones/barrels and there are only 2 poles so I can't get very creative. =/ But that's a good idea, I'll see what I can do today about dragging the poles from the arena (there are horses living in the arena right now so I can't work in there) to where I'm working Lacey.

For walking I don't think it's going to matter too much, as long as it doen't upset her.

Pishposh......LOL use anything, pop cans, feed buckets, grain sacks held down with a rock..........whatever you can get your hands on. It will keep her on her toes too.

Oh good. =)

Hahahahaha I can only imagine the look on my trainer's face if she ever happens to come out and see me using pop cans and other craziness as obstacles. haha good ideas though, I will distinctly be saving my cans now. haha
