Is there such a thing? I'm looking for something, preferably a bit competitive, that I could do with my 10.3hh pony to give her an interest outside driving. Horse agility looks fun but few opportunities in my area and expensive to set up.

Thanks in advance

Not really competitive, but my friend does classical dressage and they do lots of training inhand. Some of her peers have very ordinary horses doing flash movements piaffes etc all in hand.

Horses seem to enjoy it, they get a good workout physically and it does them no harm mentally either.

I am sure there are plenty videos etc on Utube that would get you started. You don't need a lot of room either, easy to do in corner of field.
