    I wonder where they got a ball strong enough to stand up to that kind of play. Our Friesian would love it!

    A Drill Team Coach I know has had one for for at least 3 years. Uses it when they have their Fun Show. Rider has to make their horse either get close so rider can kick the ball Or make the horse push it through obstacles on a coarse. It's fun to watch! Hard to do...ball has a mind of it's own sometimes :D A lot like Team Penning...making sure the ball goes in the direction you want it to go.

    I couldn't see the video because I have sucky dial-up, but I saw the big ball. My neighbor has one for her horses and they absolutely LOVE it!

    We had one with our Stallion many years ago he use to love to kick it. I could have watched him play with that damn ball all day.

    It looks like one of those big exercise balls they use in pilates or core training.

    That looks like tons of fun! We may need to try that after we thaw out!

    The one the coach has is like a parachute material. Very light weight.

    And...............where can you purchase them from?

    The girls would probably be pissed that it is taking up space in "their" pasture, Flint would probably try to take it into his harem and Drifter would probably be pissed that yet another thing has taken more play time away from him and Flint. ::)
