SlimStick & Pocket String
Why use a SLIMStick and Pocket String for ground work training, liberty or lungeing?
"A stick allows me to reach on either side of the drive line, which is the basic dynamic in moving any type of prey animal around is being able to control in front of and behind the drive line.
Stick and string combined, it is the right length to start your ground work. It is not too long and floppy that ends up getting in your way like a lunge whip would, yet its not so short that it puts you in the kick or strike zone. This tool can take you a long ways in refining your ground skills before you move to another tool.
The awkwardness of the normal natural horsemanship ground training sticks on the market, is that they are very badly balanced, and consequently heavy and heavy feeling in your hand. The SLIMStick's taper gives makes it a better balance, which gives you better leverage. That control will bring less fatigue to your wrist and make you more accurate in your delivery of a signal. It is a tool that I can use as a horse trainer all day long, day in and day out without getting a sore wrist or tired arm." ~ Kalley Krickeberg, Horse Education Company Brand Ambassador, Horse Trainer, Presenter
