Friday Video: From the Ground Up with Elisa Wallace

We’re big fans of Elisa Wallace’s vlog because it gives us a chance to go behind the scenes at big international events — but we also enjoy following along as Elisa puts in the time with the young or green horses she has in her program.

You can always depend on Elisa to have one or a few horses she’s working with at various stages in their training, and in her latest vlog we meet Dobby, a three-year-old Thoroughbred she’s had since he was a yearling. Slow and steady is the name of the game, and in this video we get to see Dobby’s first experience with a saddle on.

Turn the volume up and gather some pointers as Elisa walks us through her process, what she’s looking for from the horse, and what she learned about him in this session — then give her a follow on YouTube for more content.
