I can't really offer any particular DVDs.. but definitely do your research online about ground work. And in the library, rent books about horse training or look up books online that have high star ratings that focus on starting a horse, and also HANDLING a horse. I really like looking at every single known trainer's technique, including Cherry Hill (she has a very basic way of explaining things,) Rick Gore (don't get offended.. just focus on what he teaches,) Parelli, Clinton Anderson, my riding instructors through the years, local trainers, EVERYONE! And lots of books on the subject too :)
You can also find a knowledgeable horse instructor.. maybe a riding instructor or a "trainer" and ask them to help you/teach you about some of their techniques to better prepare your horse for under saddle work.
Just seek every resource out there. Maybe browse the training section on these forums and C&P techniques onto a word document, print them out.. you could try them, further research them, find videos on youtube, ask local trainers about them, develop your own, etc.
But I will say this.. a strong background in ground work will develop a very good mount. Then you just need to make sure that YOU know what you're doing (definitely get a riding instructor that has experience.. it's SO worth it) so that you can help to further develop everything your horse has been taught on the ground.. to under saddle :)
Have fun and wear gloves! :P
