Ground Work Exercises to Gain Confidence with your Horse – With Brandi Lyons

Watch this video as I show you ground working exercises that I will be using at Road to the Horse 2022. Use these exercises to improve your communication with your horse, while building confidence and increasing control

In order to communicate with a horse we first must understand how a horse learns. All trainers, clinicians, and horseman can agree… horses learn what we want by asking them to do something and releasing or rewarding them the second they do what we are asking of them. Releasing is a key ingredient in learning how to talk to a horse; the release of pressure can come from so many ways. It can come from body position, from release of lead rope, or rein, or tapping from a dressage whip or even energy that we give them. But the very second you release that pressure they learn to continue that behavior.
