  • Intro to In-Hand Work

    In this brief video, 2021 Dressage at Devon winner and head trainer at Hilltop Farm, Michael Bragdell introduces his collection on how he starts working his horses in hand leading up to performing half-steps with them. He gives a simple explanation of what he does and why he does it.

  • Equipment and Tack for In-Hand Work

    Michael explains his choices for equipment, from bridles to footwear to whips, that he uses for his groundwork and why. Overall, his choices are simple with safety and ease of use in mind.

  • Yielding to the Rein

    The first step in Michael process is to see how the horse yields to the rein on both sides. He wants them to follow the pressure of the rein, and when the horse bends around and follows the rein, he releases the pressure. He also explains and demonstrates how it can be different on each side.
