    Running slowly out of ideas for training

    So now that winter is coming its been raining every single day - all day. And not spending time with my horse due to just rain, is an impossibility. On rainy, muddy days I like to spend my time with my horse in the barn. (No arena, so I can't ride) But, I have totally ran out of rainy day ideas, and I know their is so much more! So far, this is what we have done on the ground: Backing up, Lunging on small lunge line perfecting commands, lying down, ground tie, standing still for mounting, liberty training at walking and trotting, side passing, holding feet up (The farrier loves me for this ) Standing still while be tied, moving off pressure, desenetizing, bowing, and we are actually working on sitting down. () And... some more I can't think of. So, I know their is so much more things to do on the ground, but sadly I can't think of anything! So, any suggestions for activities on the ground that don't involve a ton of space?

    He is kept on our property, not boarded. Paying for the cost of board would be physically impossible right now.
