Teach Your Horse to Ground Tie

Does your horse fidget in the cross-ties or paw incessantly when you are tacking up? Or do you just want a cool new horse skill to impress your friends at the barn?

All joking aside, I feel that ground tying is an essential skill for the horses I work with. It teaches them to stand patiently for grooming and tacking up, and it can alleviate some tying problems as well. I have witnessed too many cross-tie pullback accidents that my personal rule is I will not cross-tie a horse until he can stand quietly ground tied. Any horse can learn this, but it does take practice and consistency. I find that it takes most new horses that come in for training about one or two weeks to learn it.

In this week’s video, I show you I train my horses to ground tie. Click play and enjoy!
