    Ground Tying

    Anyone have any tips on teaching a horse to ground tie?

    I usually just take the horse out, and start dropping the lead, or hang it over my arm while grooming and tacking up. Ask him to "Stand". If he moves, either give him a gentle bump on the halter to stop him, and say "stand" again, or immediately put him to work by backing him, longing him, or working on yielding his hind or front end. The latter "usually" works better, because he would rather stand than work (most horses do). How quickly he catches on, is going to depend on how often you do it, and how quickly you correct him as soon as he moves.

    I do the same. I just start dropping the lead and if he moves firmly put him back. I also teach hobbling right away and he wears them daily while grooming. It is like ground tying in that he is free from any restraint except his legs. They quickly learn to stand quietly if you do it all the time and whenever he moves put him back.
