I have been told by the doctor that I m not allowed to ride for quite a while because of an injury. What exercises can I do to keep my horse in shape from the ground?

And take your horse for walks too 🙃
Ground work, liberty work, roundpenning/lunging ? :)
The parelli 7 games are super fun and effective!
Walks
Lunging
go on trail rides by hand
lots of lunging! Look into straightness training and clicker training, one helps the horse's muscles and one allows the horse to have fun
Lots of lounging and you could even do some in hand :)
Showmanship/ liberty
Lunging, free lunging, go on a hand walk on around your property
Pesoa her !it works really well
Lunging or u could have someone else ride ur horse and u could instruct them
Lunge, free lunge, showmanship, liberty work
Thanks. I am trying to broaden my horizons and my mare gets bored easily so I need to find ways to keep her busy too
Showmanship*
Lunging over trot poles, in hand showm
