This is part 2 of a 2-part series. In this video we cover beginning halter training and initial groundwork for a young/unhandled horse who had learned a few bad habits.
In this video we explore the techniques of ground driving, how to prepare your horse and the purposes and goals behind this approach. This can be a helpful tool in the starting process for any horse – but is particularly helpful for nervous horses that have trouble accepting a persons position above/behind their blind spot or changing eyes. Done correctly, this can help a horse learn to follow the rein with flexion throughout his body.
