Training Buzz: Philosophy of Leading Your Horse

On this week’s Training Buzz, we hear from Monique Potts, a USDF bronze medalist, instructor and trainer who uses groundwork to help improve her dressage riding. She credits much of her horsemanship philosophy to Buck Brannaman’s influence throughout her life. “I am always willing to keep learning,” Monique says. “To work with horses is to know that there is always something more to learn.” In this clip, Monique talks about horse behavior and how that impacts leading the horse. The expectation while leading in hand is that the horse stays where he should be and in sync with his handler.
