About the Event

Please note: 1 Horse and Handler to be assessed

Mandy considers these groundwork basics the foundation building blocks needed to train a horse for any discipline properly. The better your horse is at the Groundwork exercises, the better he will be under saddle. The importance of groundwork cannot be emphasized enough; the horse will learn coping skills and balance, which sets them up for success in their ridden career. Mandy uses a combination of Positive and Negative reward-based training when teaching her horses. You have the option of teaching your horse Positive reward training along with Mandy, or you can just simply opt-out of the first exercise.
