    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 ;))

    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 !
