Ground work is the basic of all work with a horse. It is fun and useful for horse and rider and one of the first steps in training a horse to become a reliable partner.

Ground work is not only gymnastics for your horse but teaches it concentration, coordination and patience along with paying attention to the finest signals of its human partner.
With a wide range of different materials for a varying training, your horse will learn to keep cool when meeting new situations or things.
Ground work also helps solving problems of dominance and will establish the „pecking order“ mandatory for a safe and comforting pairing of humans and horses.

The rider learns to read his horse, to influence it and to chose the right moment and way to communicate, act and react with it.

Ground work helps to refine the partnership between rider and horse.
