Working the horse from the ground—schooling "in-hand" as it has been known for centuries—has long been an integral part of classical horse training. Now, this gorgeously illustrated book explains in clear, step-by-step lessons how the modern-day horse owner can incorporate classical groundwork in her daily interactions with her equine partner—to both their benefit and enjoyment.

Whether schooling green or young horses; retraining problem horses or those with poor foundations; warming-up advanced mounts prior to workouts; confirming lateral movements on the ground before attempting them on horseback; or supplementing everyday under-saddle exercises, work in-hand provides a wonderful way to advance the horse's education, as well as the standard of communication between horse and handler. Its gradual progression of work on the longe, double-longe, long lines, short reins, and long reins is the perfect addition to the training program that has grown a little stale or boring; the manageable solution to countless problems that commonly arise in daily work with horses; and by definition, an equestrian art form unto itself.

With over 100 color photographs—including many detailed series shots—to demonstrate correct body positioning, and meticulously hand-drawn illustrations to guide you through the often-confusing land of lateral work, Horse Training In-Hand is the first book ever to help shed classical groundwork's mystique while conscientiously preserving its magic. Find out for yourself how schooling in-hand can give your training program a brand new look and feel, forever transforming "workouts" and "schooling sessions" into artistic endeavors that yield breathtaking results.

Review:

"Fundamental theory is outlined in accessible terms so that the reader understands the 'whys' as well as the 'hows.' From leg-yield to piaffe, the authors guide the reader through a solid primer in classical methodology."  Sherry Ackerman, author, Dressage in the Fourth Dimension

"Without any question one of the best guide books that I read about proper ground work."  Walter A. Zettl, author, The Circle of Trust

"This book shows how schooling in-hand can improve not only the horse's movement, but also communication between horse and human . . . A great book for learning the importance of groundwork!"  Horsemen's Yankee Pedlar



"Now this gorgeously illustrated book brings new life to these time-tested techniques, showing how schooling in-hand can improve the horse’s straightness, suppleness, balance, collection, and understanding of the aids."  Northwest Rider
