Groundwork Skills

Groundwork really is the foundation for all that you do with your horse.  This can include playing with obstacles to develop confidence and trust to simple in-hand sessions. Learning about the basics of in-hand work will benefit you greatly  as you are then able  to help your horse move his centre of balance towards his hindquarters making the task of carrying you easier to manage.  If you are struggling with a horse that is heavy on the forehand or finds lead changes difficult, these lessons will be invaluable to you. If you are looking for a way to develop the bond with your horse and to increase your communication, groundwork lessons are ideal. These lessons are perfect for building confidence as you learn to read your horse more and more accurately while your horse appreciates more clarity in your relationship.

"I just wanted to say a quick thank you for such an inspiring, insightful and enabling day yesterday. Your enthusiasm for liberty is contagious as is your certainty that anyone can do it with any horse. I learnt something valuable from everyone, horse and human but Timo really was astonishing. I've worked with a lot of young horses but never have I had such a strong unshakeable feeling/picture of the inside of him. Such a beautiful warm orange light which just radiated from him. Thank you!"

"Sam came back to Jersey last weekend, we have missed her so much. it was a beautiful sunny day and Rosa and I had such a fun lesson playing at liberty. Rosa is an ex-racehorse so has natural energy (lots of!!). It has taken a lot of time and patience to get where we are now, thanks to Sam for her help we are making excellent progress and today I had the most magical time when Rosa stayed with me and didn't want to wander off on her own!! It was a wonderful moment."

"Sam has developed a beautiful, fun and fulfilling (for both horse and trainer) method for liberty training which combines her deep knowledge of natural horsemanship with positive reinforcement. Sam was very sensitive to exactly what our needs were, she was positive and kind and always right. It was such a pleasure to work with her and in just 2 sessions she helped us immensely to move our liberty work forward. I would not hesitate to recommend Sam for this kind of training."
