Here are some fun ways to spice up your ground work and provide your horse another platform to understand pressure and release. Be careful when you start this, you may have your horse good off of the lead rope, but you also may find that this is a different feel for your horse. I mention […]

So, this video here is a little clunky. I’m pretty hesitant to post it, quite frankly, but I’m hoping it will encourage someone who feels a little like I look. I shot it myself as the sun was setting the other night, so if you see me looking at the camera, it’s to be sure […]

Tristen Baroni

In this video I cover footfall of leads at both the canter and gallop leading to flying lead changes. It is so important that we actually know or are at least cognizant of what our horse’s feet are doing. Especially if we are trying to perform lead changes and other maneuvers along the same lines.
