I love ground work. The horse can learn new things without worrying about the rider on its back.. sort of how lunging with us on is great for our riding since we don't have to focus on the horse, just our bodies.

For me, groundwork is working in a halter and leadrope on the basics of leading, learning to disengage and yield certain parts of the horse, helping the horse overcome a fear or "mental-obstacle" via desensitizing and sacking out.

Lunging can be part of ground work but I consider that separate. And that's mainly a substitute for riding. Riding the horse has the rider to worry about, lunging the horse can work on its own gaits and tempo and get exercise. I like to keep those sessions short and sweet.

Yes, people will bump to get their stuff to appear at the top. Seems that everyone uses the word subbing tho here to do that. I see that in the classifieds a lot.

I have the same thing. What I found was if you worked the horse HARD when they were near their buddies that they quickly lost interest in running and bolting. I haven't tried riding him alone yet since I have been working but for on the ground it has done wonders. Also letting you horse go crazy (in a safe setting) while slowly taking his buddy/buddies away and then bringing them back once the other horse has settled down. Hope this helps!
