And let us say, amen. I can't believe what an impact doing groundwork has on Huey's disposition. I haven't been able to ride him for a month because of winter and such, and he was definitely getting a little bit testy. I started taking him out for just really basic stuff, and lunging him for ten minutes when possible, and it took the starch right out of his attitude. Turned him from a star-gazing giraffe with a doubtful glare into my cheeky affectionate boy again.
