Practice your indoor riding skills
You could set up a course in your house and pretend to ride a horse – jump over cushions and zigzag around shoes on the floor.
Or perhaps someone else in the house could do the hard work and you could ride on that person’s back?!
Another option is to tie ropes to a chair for to practice holding the reins and steering.
