Groundwork with Feel with Buck Brannaman

Excerpt from the Horseman’s Gazette Issue No. 13

Communication with your horse can be developed whether you’re on the ground or in the saddle. Offer your horse a feel and teach him to follow a suggestion. The more consistent you are, the sooner your horse will be able to differentiate between cues and motion. In this segment, Buck Brannaman discusses a simple ground exercise he regularly uses and what he looks for in the horse. A horse that is reactive rather than responsive is not ready to ride and needs better preparation before a rider can safely climb into the saddle.
