    Riding and ground work harmonize together to help a horse learn all that he can and be as soft and responsive that he can be.

    One without the other leaves HUGE holes in training.

    Imagine a horse that knew groundwork so well and you got on and he wasn't used to carrying you around. He'd be very unbalanced and it would be hard for him to carry out what he knows.

    Imagine a horse that's great under saddle but doesn't understand that those cues you taught him up there make sense on the ground as well.

    Together, the horse has no confusion or hesitation on what to do as long as you are clear in your cues. :)

    I didn't read through all of the articles but I did pull ones that I thought would be interesting to look through. Everyone has a different view on the same thing. Flexion to some means carrot exercises and not that little change of angle in the poll bones (which I have yet to memorize lol!) etc. etc.

    The BEST thing you can do, is get educated as much as you can. Then you can pick and choose what works best for your horse, and yourself.

    :)

    You go girl! Stand your ground and do exactly what you want to do with your horse! Just smile and say "no thanks, maybe later".

    Then when you do go out riding with them and their horses are being idiots and yours is behaving like a gentleman, you'll know who was right.

    Don't let them pressure you. Do it in your own time!

    Sky's old owner was surprised and thought I was being a silly girl for not riding Sky the first month (first day really) that he arrived at the new barn.

    I stuck to my guns and worked with him on the ground and guess-freaking-what. When I got on, I never fell off again. He was calm and happy, and we ACTUALLY got some progress.

    So there you go, an example of what listening to your gut feeling ends up like.

    Pressure should never get to you. Always follow your gut feeling!

    My favourite thing to say to someone when they won't back off (I'm talking they won't accept your no thank you or keep bringing it up): My horse, my decision.
