Classic work in-hand has a brand new look
Working the horse from the ground – schooling “in-hand” as it has been known for centuries – offers very horse and his handler countless benefits, regardless of training level or discipline. Now, this gorgeously illustrated book shows how to apply these time-tested techniques to modern-day training programmes – step-by-step, in language that makes sense to today’s horse owner.
Discover why in-hand is the perfect way to:
Start a green or young horse
Restart a horse that requires remedial training
Confirm lateral movements on the ground before attempting them from the saddle
Work a horse that needs therapeutic physical exercise and cannot be ridden
Keep an older horse that shouldn’t be ridden often – or at all- strong and fit
Maintain training and conditioning when a trainer can’t ride, perhaps due to injury
Demonstrate how specific exercises “feel” to a student in the saddle
Add variety to the standard under-saddle training program
Warm up a horse prior to beginning a riding session.
Perhaps most importantly, schooling from the ground is a wonderful, health, and safe way to have fun with your horse. Let Horse Training In-Hand show you how.
