WHY WE DO “GROUNDWORK.”

The short answer is SAFETY! You can’t work with the horse if you are injured or dead.

The more involved answer is that by using groundwork as a FIRST STEP in your training program/communication development you can help the horse gain confidence in itself and in YOUR LEADERSHIP as you work on your feel and timing. Through the use of focused groundwork exercises you can gain better control of the horse’s body parts and the horse’s mind as you help it get prepared to work more effectively under saddle. Through the use of groundwork the Human can really get to know the Horse and all of its “signals” from how much pressure is needed to how it is feeling on any given day. Groundwork also allows for the safe introduction and training of new skills. It is MUCH easier to “advance and retreat” on the ground than it is under saddle. Safer too.

So, what if your horse is pretty well trained, confident and dialed in? Well, groundwork STILL is a great “pre-flight check” approach to seeing the horse’s mind, body and spirit on a given day as you take time to do a warm up! You can tell A LOT about the kind of ride or session you are going to have as you go through a ground work routine to warm up your horse. Again, this comes back to a “safety first” approach. It is also the responsible thing to do as the custodian of the horse. Just jumping on is both unwise and unfair.

Take the time and DO YOUR GROUNDWORK! You will be glad you invested the time and the focus in doing so because you have prepared yourself and your horse for success!
