  • classical dressage in hand

  •  natural horsemanship

  • working in a round pen

  • trot poles or gridwork

  • lunging

  • a check in to see how your horse is

But it is complementary to all of the above and more.

 

What it is

Groundwork to enhance your horses functional movement and wellbeing by improving their proprioception, body awareness and balance.  It usually incorporates poles, mats, cones, Connected Riding one lining etc. but we can work with what you have available or I can bring some equipment.

  • If only have 15 mins some days (can be a short or as long as ylu like)

  • Include in your horse's rehab program after an injury

  • Assist the horse struggling with their day to day work
