Synopsis: 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.

Product Description: Bringing new life to time-tested techniques, this gorgeously illustrated book shows how "in-hand" methods can be used by the modern equestrian to better a horse's performance in any discipline. Thorough, step-by-step instructions for promoting subtle communication via the handler's voice, body, and reins will improve the horse's straightness, suppleness, balance, collection, and understanding of the aids. With its ability to improve communication between participants and instill in the horse lightness and obedience, these methods are the perfect way to start an immature or green horse, safely begin remedial training with a problem animal, confirm movements taught first under saddle, maintain an older horse's flexibility and balance, and allow those unable to ride a method to continue training and conditioning their horse at the highest level. Specific exercises cover the longe and double-longe lines, long lines, and long and short reins. Featuring patterns that put all the lessons together, the book confirms that in-hand training is the very best way to teach and condition a horse for both serious schooling and recreational pursuit.
