MODULE 1 - THE BASICS (PART 1)
ASSESSING YOUR HORSE
Let us know your assessment of your horse in the forum. It will be a great way to record your starting point.
THE BASIC THEORIES AND TRAINING METHODS
These videos are from our Groundwork Certification Programme and represent the best description of the basic groundwork which you need to train for a safer and more responsive horse. The videos are short and designed to get you going as quickly as possible. If you have any problems at all, remember you can post a video in the forums asking us for help on a specific question. Use the case studies (more coming) and the Typical Mistakes videos to help you progress quicker by watching others working through the system.
