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.

" 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.
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!
