    I do Parelli. The first level is all about groundwork and building a relationship with your horse. I have stopped riding until Vega and I build our foundation. The other levels are just building off of your foundation and making it into a partnership with your horse.

    I did teach Vega to bow, by using carrots. She only puts her head between her front legs and move one leg forward a bit. I think it's really cool though.

    Though I would LOVE to know how you taught your horse to sit.

    To describe how to teach it in a few sentences is quite impossible, because it's a long way until a horse can sit. There is a scale of circus goes bow on both sides, kneel down, lay down, lay flat and at last to sit up from laying (not down ;))

    Oh ok, I understand that now!

    That's pretty cool!

    Aw, your English is actually pretty good!
    I'd love to teach Lexi some tricks, that'd be pretty cool. Like little ones (not rearing or anything, that's a no-no for me).

    I think ground work is essential for a good bond between you and your horse no matter the age.

    I love doing trick training! I've taught my horse several. Here's a pic of him shaking:

    I am really interested in doing more ground work with Willy - I haven't yet...I've been thinking about doing Parelli...I spend a lot of time with him not riding, but I know that doesn't count.

    Although I don't do any trick training, I wouldn't even know where to start!

    I love the fact that you are here on Horse forum! Sounds like you could have a lot of advise for us !
