So I believe my horse was rushed/forced into training, level 1 dressage (so the previous owner claims... yet I've had him evaluated and they think it never happened..) and is proclaimed "green" but I don't even think he's green...he barely understands a thing I am asking him to do, so I've started doing some groundwork and that is transferring into saddle work beautifully.
However, after talking with a trainer I've been working with on just MYSELF (using her lesson horses to work on my seat and balance, etc.) she believes I should ground drive my horse because it'll help him to understand what I'm asking him to do and he'll become a lot more confident and able.
I have no idea how to ground drive.. And I rather not try to figure it out because it would probably be more hurtful than helpful... but I was wondering, are there trainers out there that I could pay to walk me through how to ground drive, working on different kinds of horses, and then applying it to my horse? Sort of like ground driving lessons :P
I really want to learn...rather than pay someone to do it for me, or worse... send him away somewhere.
