Connect with Your Horse from the Ground Up

Transform the Way You See, Feel, and Ride with a Whole New Kind of Groundwork

Connect with Your Horse from the Ground Up

PEGGY CUMMINGS with Bobbie Jo Lieberman


At a young age, Peggy Cummings noticed that many of the horses she rode and worked with were sadly inhibited—unable to express their innate curiosity, trust, and freedom of motion—and went about their work in a mechanical, stiff way.

These exercises, done both standing still and in motion, drastically change the way you see and "feel" your horse, and radically improve how your horse moves, responds, and goes about his work.

In clinics worldwide and through her website and books, PEGGY CUMMINGS helps countless riders discover their own "aha" moments, helping horses and riders get "unstuck," regain their elasticity, and learn what it’s like to move without bracing patterns, compression, and counterbalancing. Her DVD
