Half Circle Exercise with Buck Brannaman


Excerpt from the Horseman’s Gazette Issue No. 2

Ground work can be a valuable tool for assessing a horse and teaching them to yield before getting in the saddle.  Buck Brannaman demonstrates a half-circle exercise that he uses to free up the forequarters. This is more of a mental exercise than a physical one, so you may be surprised if some things come to the surface that you weren’t aware of before. Take the opportunity to improve your timing by developing your feel for the feet.
