ground work/ lunging

Due to the fact that I dislocated my elbow, I cant ride for another few weeks :( I was wondering if you guys had any fun ideas for lunging or ground work.

I did some ground work today, and he was VERY good. He walked and halted just by voice aids, I even got him to slow down and speed up his walk with voice aids. We practiced backing up and Im trying to teach him to turn on the forhand. He even stood still for the fly spray (he never does this!) Is there anything else we can do?

In a week or so I should be strong enough for lunging. Other than h/w/t/c is there anything else I can do? I was thinking mayby ground driving.

Thanks
