Friday Video from SmartPak: Cross-Country Prep from the Ground

There are so many reasons why you might want to work on cross-country skills from the ground: your horse might be too young or inexperienced to learn them under saddle; you might be dealing with a confidence crisis or an injury of your own; or, you might fancy just giving your horse the opportunity to figure out his own footwork without having to compensate for the balance of a rider on top. Whichever reason compels you, it’s a great way to use your time — and one that even the great Michael Jung uses frequently with his horses. This intensive video lesson will show you how best to tackle everything you’ll find on course, including ditches, water, banks, and more, both safely and effectively. Happy jumping!
