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.

Excellent exercise to lighten up the horses’ front end. Also helped me with my timing. Nicely explained, thank you Buck Brannaman.
