    Here is an article about what I consider basic handling Groundwork for the Horse Exercises
    Watch out on circling young horses....I usually do just enough to get the response I am looking for. Circling too hard and for too long in one direction and/or too often can damage the legs.

    Feed you young horse properly too.
    My guys are on either a high quality diet for foals or Ultium. They get dac Bloom and dac Colt Grower. Good quality hay with as much turn-out and pasture as I can provide. I do the Colt Grower for the first 4 yrs, then switch to Total Performance if they are working or dac Bloom and dac Orange if they aren't pushed.

    Thank you so much for all of your replies!! It has been very helpful! :)
    I use Clinton Anderson stuff a lot too, Barrelracer. So I have done a good amount of ground work. But since you said I should take it slow and set goals I am slowing down and going to really work on the things she knows now. :)
    So far she yields her hindquarters and her front. She is starting to lead with a rope around her neck and she is pretty desensitized to a lot of stuff. (still desensitizing a ton though :)
    I thought I would work with all that for the next month. Does that sound okay for a 1 month old?
    Thanks!!! And if anybody else has anything else to add I am taking all I can get!! Lol :)
