What is Gymnastic Groundwork for Body and Mind? Healthy Movement, Happy Horse ๐ŸŽ

If you’re looking for a clear, gentle and fun way to help your horse become sounder, straighter, more supple and balanced, this is for you.

Gymnastic Groundwork helps your horse in these ways:

#1 Stretch, Strengthen and Straighten

#2 Improve Body Awareness and Proprioception

#3 To solve problems like rushing, resistance, stiffness, one-sidedness, heaviness and over-excitable in trot and canter

#4 To prepare horses physically and mentally for riding

#5 To bring emotional enjoyment through training using positive reinforcement or clicker training so the horse is relaxed, motivated and keen.

#6 To help EVERY horse become sounder and find joy in movement. Whether they’re young, old, small, large, ridden or non-ridden, we look for improvements rather than a specific end goal or discipline.

If you’ve never done this work before or wondered what is is or why it’s a cornerstone of so many people’s training approach, this video is for you!

So, grab a cuppa and find out how exercises like in-hand work, lateral movements, pole exercises and lunging can be taught simply, gently and positively, drastically improving your horse’s movement and your communication together.
