I want to start doing some ground work with my pony as there will come a time when i am too big for her and i also think it would be nice to bond even more with her.

i saw a thread yesterday about 'cobs can' and the video of the horse doing spanish walk in hand, thats the sort of thing i would like to build up too.

Soooo where do i start?? is there a book (that doesn't cost £20 +) that is easy to read and understand?

i do like some of the parelli type stuff but not all of it and i dont know what to pick and choose?

Alexandra Kurland is the queen of clicker for horses. Her books are fab (the lovely Joviy2k2 gave me hers to use and I love it).
Its very true what they say about the initial link with the clicker and treat. Some horses get it immediately, others take a while. I thought my horse had got the whole thing but then when I tried to move on to new stuff he was just at a loss and would walk off after five minutes leaving me thinking 'I've got treats, where are you going?!!'
I went right back to the start again and he now totally gets the clicker-treat link. Its like a little light bulb has gone on inside his head and he understands that he can control behaviour. Suits him as he's quite a defiant chap, likes to think he's in charge!
