If your horse is feeling sick or recovering from an injury, there aren’t many things you can do together.
But I’ve made a list of 10 things to do with an injured horse.
Keep in mind that your horse might not be able to do all these exercises, depending on his injury.
Grazing on a small hill to improve balance and bodyawareness
Turning around the front and hind end to improve bodyawareness
Zigzagging through cones to make the body more flexible again
Braingames to challenge your horse mentally
Going on adventures around the barn to get some exercise
Working in hand to help your horse get in shape again
Playing with yogamats to improve proprioception
Going through an obstacle course to improve confidence and have fun
Teaching new tricks
Adding paddock enrichment so your horse will enjoy his time when you’re away too
I hope your horse will feel better soon!
