Introduction to In Hand Work

Develop Beneficial Movement Through Correct Posture and Balance for a Healthier Horse and a Happier Relationship

Learn how to help your horse develop fluidity and centeredness in their movement from the ground by achieving better balance, movement and position in-hand.

Good Balance is Developed in Small Ways

It's time to stop cutting corners and truly help your horse feel confident and comfortable in their natural way of going. In this course Amy clearly connects the dots and teaches you how in-hand work develops real change in your horse's posture, balance, rhythm, and confidence. No small thing is inconsequential, even in your own movement patterns, and it is time to understand movement in a deeper and truly more beneficial way.

Together you and your horse will work together in-hand on the essential building blocks necessary to carry yourselves independently and together more confidently, comfortably and truly balanced from the ground and into your ridden work.

Dear Student of the Horse,

Do you want to be able to work with your horse in harmony? Do you want to ensure the work you're doing with your horse truly benefits their soundness and overall relationship with the aids, and even you? Do you want to find the missing pieces that are holding you back from making progress in your work and confidently have a plan and the tools to move forward?

This course is for you if you answered yes to any of the above - but most importantly, this course is for you if you are a dedicated horse person who is committed to being the best they can be for their horse: someone who refuses to take short cuts, is willing to be disciplined to look at themselves first, and is willing to work hard at creating a better balance in their body and mind before correcting the horse.

That’s what in-hand work is all about: self mastery .

The work will be simple, but it will not be easy. It will require thought, reprogramming your habits and your horses, and a willingness to be open. It’s not for anyone looking for a quick fix, or anyone looking to bounce around and try to mash together ten different programs - it is logical, progressive, and requires a commitment to the same principles in all other areas of our lives with the horse to work well. So if this sounds like you, I look forward seeing you in the course.


Amy Skinner

Amy Skinner's in-hand instruction is quiet genius. She has a keen eye for subtle movements in you and your horse and offers gentle guidance for simple steps that lead to huge changes in your in-hand work and in your horse. From how to position yourself and use your tools to understanding diagonal steps, rhythm, and straightness, it is life changing information. Her teaching is always kind and clear with specific feedback for each individual. Learning how to do in-hand work from Amy has really improved everything we do together. My horse now enjoys our work because he knows he will leave the arena feeling more relaxed and balanced in his body and mind. We are no longer fighting each other and can work together without drama. I highly recommend learning these valuable skills from Amy.

Recently, my mare Ginger was really struggling with moving freely. Her gaits were short and choppy, and she seemed mentally checked out, dull, and uninterested in work. I decided to send her to Amy for a few months of training to see if she could help us. Ginger blossomed under Amy's care. Her movement became freer, more relaxed, and frankly, more beautiful. Her attitude improved and she was engaged and tuned in. In-hand work was a big part of her transformation. It helped teach her (and me) to move more intentionally and rhythmically, which was the kick starter of her transformation. While my mare quickly mastered the work, I struggled to catch up. Lucky for me, Amy is great at breaking critical work like this into digestible steps. She is happy to answer questions and re-explain until the work "clicks". This work is truly transformative for both horse and human!
