Weekly Task Challenge: Egg and Spoon!

If you don't know what to do, have little time, or just feeling stuck, try the weekly task as a way to at least do something with your horse! (It just may motivate you to do more!)

Since we had fun with a silly task two weeks ago, let's try another. Remember egg and spoon? The rider rides the horse with a spoon in hand that has an egg balancing on it! I recommend using a regular, metal spoon, not a plastic one.

This week's challenge is to get together with a fellow horse buddy and play egg & spoon in the snow (bareback if you dare)! Play with a dozen eggs (please buy cagefree eggs --poor chickies). Try the game at all gaits and in all depths of snow! If you dare, use obstacles and jumps too (being mindful of ice). Each time you lose, you give your friend a dollar! Remember, you will need a dollar for every egg used in the game. If you are in the lonely barn (like me), put the buck in a jar and your horse gets it each time you lose, towards some yummy treats! Have fun, be safe, and as always, be savvy!
