Service Description

While we might love to ride, it’s critical to remember that our horses are also attentive, sensitive learners on the ground. Equitation scientists, veterinarians, and trainers agree: Here lies the foundation for strong relationships, safe habits, and good learning. Good groundwork stimulates the horse’s brain to increase its problem-­solving abilities. It is foundation training at its best and when done correctly, horses learn simple cues that build upon one another to be more complex. It teaches them that paying attention to the human and listening to our cues can lead to less confusion and conflict. In addition groundwork teaches the horse balance, athleticism and proprioception. The horse learns to use its body correctly, since we can teach them from the ground how to use the correct muscles and mechanisms. This will make it easier for the rider to "request" those moves under saddle.
