Ground driving is a great in-hand technique, where the horse is equipped with a saddle or surcingle, bridle, and a pair of long “reins” which are held by a person on the ground, who walks behind the horse and drives him forward.
Ground driving is an ideal way to teach the horse to give to rein pressure while changing gaits at the walk, trot, canter, and through stopping and backing without a rider being on his back. After teaching a horse to lunge, ground driving is a great next step in his ground training.
These ground driving reins are made from a high quality rope, with a fast snap on each end. Ground driving is a great way to develop the horse's strength, fitness and coordination without having to carry the rider's weight.
Other benefits include that it's a low stress exercise, it adds variety to your training and it helps to prepare your horse for under the saddle or cart work.
