How do you accomplish anything horsey in the DARK??? By the time I get home, clean and feed, it's completely dark outside. I have a two year old I am trying to keep in some type of work until we go inside for the winter (january). Any ideas????

Can you work with him earlier in the morning when there is some sun?

I 2nd headlamps. They work well and it's also a good de-sensitizing item as some horses have issue with that shining light on the human's head. I've found they get over it pretty quickly.

I leave for work at 6:15AM so mornings are out. I will try the headlamps. ANy recommendations? A problem with dusk/evening is that the deer come out near the ring. Always an eye opening experience. Last weekend one jumped the fence into the pasture not seeing that there was a horse in there.

We used to set up those lights on the tripods for part of the ring. It might give you light for 20 meter circle.

Years ago, we brought our round pen up in front of and off to the side a little by the barn. We have a super strong lamp on the front of the barn we turn on, lights up the round pen beautifully and can work with no problem. That is until the ground freezes. Going to try the CalMag this year and see if that gives us footing from freezing. That seems to be our biggest problem. Granted it is only a round pen but it is big enough to accomplish some schooling and is better than nothing. And easy to put up if u have room next to your barn.
