Groundwork Vol 1: Troubleshooting by Mark Rashid

Groundwork Vol 1: Troubleshooting
Mark Rashid

In this, the first in a series of Groundwork DVDs by Mark, he works in the round pen with two horses that were deemed “hard-to-catch” by their owners. Mark brings a low key, low stress style of round pen work to each horse and quickly helps them understand the idea of being caught. He also shows ways to graduate from the round pen to a large open area when working with a hard to catch horse.

In addition, Mark troubleshoots the reasons for both horses’ lack of willingness to want to allow humans to approach and catch them, while at the same time addressing issues such as working with the “one sided horse” and picking up the feet of a horse who is hard to trim and shoe.

Running time: one hour, fifteen minutes

Mark Rashid (pronounced RASH-id) is an internationally acclaimed horse trainer known for his ability to understand the horse’s point of view and solve difficult problems with communication rather than force. He began working with horses at age ten, when he met the “old man,” who taught him to work with horses, not against them, and to listen to what the horse is trying to say. Mark’s clinics center on one-on-one work with horse and rider and are immensely popular with people around the world.

When Mark decided to study the martial art of aikido as a way to improve his horsemanship, he brought the same quiet determination to it that he exhibits in his work with horses. After years of practice, he earned a black belt in Yoshinkan aikido and now teaches the “way of harmony” in the local dojo.

Mark worked full time on ranches for many years gathering herds, managing stock, and training horses. When time permits, he still enjoys working on ranches near his home in Estes Park, Colorado.

Mark has been a guest on NPR’s The Horse Show and was featured on the Nature series on PBS. He is the author of six books - Considering the Horse, A Good Horse is Never a Bad Color, Horses Never Lie, Life Lessons from a Ranch Horse, Horsemanship Through Life, and his latest Big Horses, Good Dogs, and Straight Fences.
