Connect with Your Horse from the Ground Up: Transform the Way You See, Feel, and Ride with a Whole New Kind of Groundwork Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

At a young age Peggy Cummings noticed that many horses she rode and worked with were sadly inhibited—unable to express their innate curiosity, trust, and freedom of motion—and went about their work in a mechanical, stiff way. This inspired a lifelong search for real-world ways to achieve the "lightness" and "ease" promoted by top instructors and classical texts. Now, in this long-awaited book, Cummings describes the essentials of her specialized groundwork—the first half of her acclaimed Connected Riding program—along with over two dozen highly illustrated exercises to help horses and their handlers find a reciprocal "connection" on the ground before attempting to establish it from the more difficult position in the saddle. These exercises—done both standing still and in motion—drastically change the way you see and feel your horse, and radically improve how your horse moves, responds, and goes about his work.

Synopsis:

Introducing a new approach to specialized groundwork for horse training, this guide provides more than two dozen exercises to help horses and their handlers find a reciprocal connection on the ground before the rider takes a position in the saddle. These exercises—done both standing still and in motion—are shown to drastically change the way a rider sees and feels about the horse, and immediately improve how the horse moves, responds, and works. Aspiring to the ideals of lightness and ease promoted by top riding instructors and classical texts, the exercises found in this manual help handlers achieve the goals of discipline and joy that they have for their horses—leaving behind the mechanical, stiff movements that inhibit horses from expressing their innate curiosity, trust, and freedom of motion.
