In-hand exercises help the horse both physically and mentally. Through In-Hand work, we improve the horse’s strength and suppleness. We teach him to be aware of his body, to bend evenly to both sides, and to move forwards, backwards, and laterally – smoothly, softly and in a biomechanically correct way.

Patrick’s new online in-hand course “”Developing Balance In-Hand” is set to be released very soon! Even more exciting – it’s kicking off with a FREE workshop that starts March 21.
