Inhand training? Where, how & benefits?

Evening all!

I have a query...who has experience with 'inhand' training?
I'm looking to introduce more aspects in to Duffy's training, and wondering if this is something to look in to as we're aiming more towards dressage eventually.

So where do you start? Do you need a trainer, any special kit?

How do you begin with it? What are the basics, and what does the horse need to know to reach its full potential?

And what benefits are there for the horse, especially with lateral movements?

Thanks in advance!!

The very basic level is usually the best place to start

i'm currently reading a book by http://www.amazon.com/Right-Start-Create-Well-Balanced-Horse/dp/1570762082. I think it applies quite well to this thread. :)

Maybe starting with a video of a beginning hore. The video posted were much more advanced horses.


I do a lot of in-hand work starting with ground driving and going to the in-hand as in the video. The key is to be able to maintain fairly even pressure with both the reins (when you need to) using the one hand just at the inside of the withers. Being tall is a real advantage as this is more difficult for shorter people.
