I'm currently in the middle of training my 2 1/2 yr old QH gelding, and would like to hear what y'all would like to see as far as groundwork and ground manners in any horse? I want to train this horse right.
He is green broke, but we won't be starting further saddle training until he's back up to a healthy weight, as he's pretty underweight currently. He already is very respectful in his manners, but I want to see what you guys would like to see in a horse for ground manners.
Any ideas welcome!

Yup - leading nicely and staying out of my space! Not banging me with her head when she wants me to take her bridle off would be nice. Lining up and standing still for mounting (if that counts as groundwork). Camping out for mounting would be totally awesome! Backing up. Side passing in hand. Moving her butt out of the way. Loading willingly and safely. Standing still for grooming and tacking up. Lifting their feet for cleaning/farrier. Lunging.
