    Groundwork?

    Hi guys!
    I have a question about groundwork with horses.
    I have a 17 year old mare that I have owned for over 2 years now.
    We have done alot of different stuff and we both have come a long way but now that we are both somewhat "well rounded" (for lack of better words lol), I feel that I am kinda neglecting groundwork. I mean I don't just go out and work her, every couple weeks I have day where I get her out and just hang out with her and let her graze and stuff and groom her and stuff and even though its fun/relaxing its not very productive.
    So I thought this weekend while my trainer is out of town instead of going out and riding I could do a bunch of groundwork with her. I would like to hear some ideas you guys have of some stuff I can do. Like any groundwork that will be fun, gain trust, accomplish something, or anything else like that.
    I hope to start doing groundwork more frequently and start this weekend so any ideas you guys have will be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks!

    Maybe you could try the Parelli 7 Games. I posted A LOT on the other 'groundwork' topic on how to do the 7 Games, so that might give you some ideas :)
