There is only one way to learn and that's to get out there and do it. I didnt know what I was doing at first, and with some help, I am training my mare by myself successfully. Ground work is not hard.
And at least she is asking. It takes a lot to ask for help and it seems like she is eager to learn. She also obviously has an instructor on hand to help her which is why I mentioned it.
If you have permission, I say go for the ground work.
But I am still sticking with the main solution of the actual owner taking responsibility. A dangerous horse at a public barn = horror of all kinds
Agreed, but it's not her horse. And it's a massive liability to have someone working the horse on the BO's property, especially if the horse can be dangerous, and even more so if the person doesn't know what they are doing.
