Ground Work Basics for the Young Dressage Horse
03 October 2011
When I train young dressage horses, I start on the ground. In this article, I will give you some of the basics to do your own ground work "The Dressage Way".
Some people like to teach a horse to lunge in a round pen, but I like an open arena so they learn to respect the line and the person lungeing. Some times when horses have been only trained in the round pen they will take off and feel like they can run free when in open spaces.
