Quality Groundwork is the first step in developing a partnership and we should consistently take the opportunity to evaluate this most basic foundation building activity. There are many different ways that people train their horses on the ground, and this program allows you freedom and flexibility to work with your horse in the way that is most effective for you.
This is NOT a showmanship class. Scores are not based on where you stand, how you hold the lead, or how much bling is on your halter or clothing.
In Six Feet on the Ground, we emphasize the principles in the training scale, which is applicable to every discipline and provides a working model for success even before we get in the saddle.
