From the Back Cover

From Catching to Driving: Your Ringside Guide to Ground Training

Every moment you spend with your horse is an opportunity to instill good habits and develop his respect, trust, and willingness to work with you. All horses need a solid foundation of in-hand and guide-line training in order to be safe to handle and ride.

Cherry Hill’s comprehensive collection of 101 ground-training exercises leads you and your horse through catching, yielding, turning, sacking out, backing, longeing, long lining, doing obstacle work, and much more. Every exercise is fully illustrated and described in easy-to-follow, step-by-step language that you can refer to during your ground training work — simply hang the book in the barn or on a fence post, and you’re ready to go! The exercises include clear goals, variations, common problems to watch out for, and lesson reviews.

I used to waste more time thinking about what to work on and got less done because of that. This book helps formulate a structure to your in-hand work and the tips and comments keep you confident they are working...and they do. Cherry's style is very similar to Clinton Anderson, (Or maybe his is similar to hers!?) and I use them both in equal measures. No violence, just good horsemanship techniques to create a trusting, respectful partnership with your horse. My favourite comment in the book, and one I now live by, was:
" your horse doesn't need a friend, he needs a leader".
I have two stallions and this training method has given me the tools to go out and show them in the knowlege that I have their respect and trust and that I can handle any issues that might arise. That foundation will now assist in their starting under saddle and, hopefully their continued success. To use another saying from an old friend.
"The foundation isn't inportant.......it's everything!"
This book helps get that foundation in place.

This book is amazing. It is easy to follow and pick out the exercises that your horse needs. Each exercise has step by step instructions and a picture to describe the exercise. It is well worth the money.

I love the easy and effective manner that Cherry Hill writes and teaches. Lots of great information in an effective teaching format. Whether I want to spend hours with my horse or just have a few minutes, this book fits the bill. Easy to tailer the lesson from ground work to saddle. Thanks for another great read to add to my already full library of horse related books!! Already looking forward to the next book!

While choosing this book I was looking for some ideas how to build poles or some others objects for exercising a horse, but I did't find it in this book. I would recomend this book more to somebody that has not so much experiences with horses and would like to manage his own horse and learn some body language, how to approach and halter the horse, etc. but it doesn't go into the deep of the matter.

Has a wonderful Spiral Bound at the top of the book which makes it easy to use and reference in the arena or round pen with your horse. Great for making copies for horse students to review before the next lesson. Wonderful picture guides and easy points for clear steps to follow.
Love this book!
May order a second just for student copies because my current one has notes, tabs, and sections highlighted all in it.
Highly Recommend this book for instructors and students, even the weekend riders.
Love Cherry Hill! Another great tool!

I love the way it's set up as a binder, we got this book to work with our miniature horse so many of the horse training books focus on riding and thats the one thing you can't do with a mini. These exercises are great for working with him!
