Ground Training ???

Can anyone recommend some good youtube videos of ground work techniques? Thanks :) I'm new to training and my trainer said to check out youtube. But I thought I'd ask what your favorites are?

Downunder Horsemanship TV check out the episode guide.
I like some of his ways.

What I usually do is check out a number of videos and decide what I like and what most interests me.

Rather than watching youtube, google Meredith Manor and go to Articles. He takes you step by step with your groundwork with excellent explanations. A roundpen isn't necessary. This progession builds trust. I've tried his recommendations and when it comes to leading my horse I feel like I'm walking alone as he is so sensitive to what I do. The lead rope is always slack, never tightens (at least that is the goal). I had to walk in front of the horse's face to get his feet unglued all the while watching that slack was maintained.They are very forgiving of our mistakes. Good luck.

Tracy and I are new to the horse world... Me more than she... She had a horse as a young adult.. I knew what a horse was... We thought about all the training video sets out there, watch all the horse shows on RFDTV.. But decided that we were not coordinated enough to do it right our selfs. We now have a trainer training US on ground work.. We now know for us we needed to have someone with us and coaching us on the correct technique... ground work done wrong is just going to make the problem worse IMHO... Best of luck... D

I know a lot of basic ground work and I have a personal trainer. I also work for a rescue helping the trainers which allows me to get experience. But many, many people including my trainer/trainers have all told me to Google and YouTube information. I was just curious which videos people prefer because there are so many out there.
