Traditional Hackamore Groundwork by R.E. Smith

Traditional Hackamore Groundwork
R.E. Smith

In the tradition of yesterday's vaquero, today's buckaroo and horseman who set the highest standards, the Hackamore proves to be a calm, quiet alternative to the training of fine horses. Groundwork is the foundation of all training. Begin and end your horse's training using the Hackamore and enjoy the end product. A quiet, confident partner that can and will do it all.

This DVD will teach the "How to's" on the following subjects using the Hackamore:

Calming and Connecting
Learn to develop the techniques that communicate your ability to calm and control a horse. Create a relationship where the prey animal looks to the predator for comfort.

Tying and Fitting a Groundwork Hackamore
A step by step guide to the fitting and tying of a groundwork hackamore.

Ground Manners
Keep your horse "out of your back pocket," off your toes and standing in a position that is comfortable, safe and calm. A true test of our "set your standard" philosophy of training.

Foot Placement
Learn the cues to ask your horse to move like nature intended. Your hand placement encourages the basic movement that will generate the lead change. Later the flying lead change will just happen without cues, just as they would without a rider.

Calm, quiet and controlled. No need to tie your rein to your stirrup and turn your horse loose. Teach your horse to bend and release with a light touch of your hand. This begins the process of your horse following it's nose, a hackamore basic.

Sacking Out
A buckaroo term describing the process used for getting your horse ready for saddling. Learn to prepare your horse today, for potential problems that will make tomorrow alot easier.

Don't just "run the fire" out of your horse, teach them to push themselves forward, rate speed and set their head and bend while you learn to read their postures.

Ground Tying
Learn techniques to teach your horse to stand quiet without being tied to a post. A necessity for the working buckaroo, but appreciated by any horseman.
