This popular playground game works on horseback too! One person (the leader) calls out the directions and acts as a judge. Riders must move around the arena at the command of “green light,” and stop when the leader calls for a “red light.”
This game is like musical chairs but on horseback. Begin by placing a number of ground poles randomly around the arena. There should be one pole for each horse to start.Play some music (or sing, if you lack a good music system) – when the music stops, riders must position their horses over a ground pole.
