In Ground Driving 101, Mark takes viewers through the steps he uses when introducing horses — whether the young untrained horse or the older more experienced horse — to the art of ground driving. Covered in this DVD are ways to help desensitize a horse to driving lines, ideas on how to help the handler become more competent when using driving lines, starting a horse on the basics of longeing, and continuing on to more advanced longeing. He then goes on to demonstrate ground driving (including turning, stopping and backing) in both a halter and bridle. Also included in this DVD is a bonus section on how to braid your own driving lines!
About Mark Rashid
Mark Rashid has committed himself since youth to finding quiet but effective ways to work with horses. As seen in his five books, Considering the Horse, A Good Horse is Never a Bad Color, Horses Never Lie, Life Lessons From a Ranch Horse, and Horsemanship Through Life, Mark conveys his lessons in a practical, concrete manner — but with feel and understanding for the horse.
Working in America, Europe, the UK, and Australia with a multitude of breeds and riding disciplines, he focus-es on what is happening on both sides of the horse/human relationship and how the rider can clearly communicate while building trust.
Mark has spent most of his adult life studying equine and human biomechanics, physiology, psychology and movement, and has put these studies to practical use in his work with horses and riders.
