Lateral Groundwork with Jim Hicks


Excerpt from the Horseman’s Gazette Issue No. 32

This segment stems from Jim being asked in clinics how to help a horse begin to learn lateral movement from the ground. He demonstrates how you can develop the feel of and for your horse when asking him to move laterally. You will truly appreciate just how light your horse can be when you can find the balance between the font quarters, the hind quarters and the nose. While not everyone has access to, or experience with, long-lining, these additions to your groundwork are easy to incorporate.
