For the bored and clever horse...games?
My new guy is a little too clever and, as such, needs constant stimulation. He is also very playful and when he gets naughty, punishment leads to very aggressive behaviour. Admittedly, I am still working through that but I have finally learned that ignoring the bad behaviour and praising the good is actually safer and better for us both. Presently, I do not ride him, only working in hand. He is great on the lunge, very relaxed and responsive, but aside from that, a little ground driving and some basic stretching and softening exercises seem to round out our current repertoire.
Have you used any 'games' to keep your green beans engaged and challenged? I had considered trying clicker training with him as well, but I am not sure if I am coordinated enough :s
Any advice is welcome. Thanks in advance!
