Hey guys, this coming week I will have some cool posts going up. But until then, I was wondering if any of you had some good exercises to do with your horse during the winter? Like simple easy ones. I can't really take Chester out and lunge him or do high tech work. As the ground is soggy, slippery and wet. I don't want him to break any bones....
I have been working on tricks which I will continue to do. But do you have any suggestions??
These are my thoughts. I want to invest in my horse. What you put into your horse is what you're going to get out of it. Horses take a lot of time. Not just feeding and caring for them. Or the time it takes to tack up and ride and then un-tack. It takes time and effort to build a relationship with them. To gain that respect. I want to keep him thinking this winter. I want to keep investing and working with him, so that come summer, we're not "cold and stiff" so to speak.
Winter in Washington State (Northwest specifically) is the worst time and place to own a horse.
Nevertheless, I own a horse, I'm glad I own a horse and I'm sure glad I own a horse like Chester!
One more week to submit your Winter Tips And Techniques! Please really consider it!
