Summer is coming. Here are five DIY projects to tackle this season.
1. Cool down with milk jug ice cubes.
Nobody likes to drink warm water, not even your horses, so why not beat the heat with these recycled milk jug ice cubes? Remember to take the caps off before placing in water troughs!
2. Keep your horse entertained with apple and carrot kabobs.
Summer is the season of the BBQ and family fun. Include your horses in all the festivities with these fun apple and carrot kabobs. I’m not sure of the type of string used for this photo, but I have a feeling baling twine would do the trick. If your horse is extra mouthy, i.e. he’ll eat the string, I would probably make a “fruit salad” instead. It won’t last as long, but at least his tummy will be safe.
3. Act like you never left Pony Club.
Everybody remembers the glorious days of summer camp. We rode all morning and did crazy crafts all afternoon, only to head out to the barn again in the evening. Life was fantastic. Bring back a little of that nostalgia with these Spray Bleach Shirts by Hey Wanderer.
4. Enter an agility contest.
The fact of the matter is, sometimes it’s just too hot to ride. I know, I know … we hate to admit defeat when the sun is shining and the days are long, but it’s true. If you’re in search of something to do at the barn that’s less strenuous, why not check out horse agility? There’s even an online club with competitions and prize giveaways!
5. Make a hay bale pool.
Yes, you read that correctly. This is really a thing and I want one. For the full instructions head over to Diply.
