Working in hand is a valued tool when educating a horse. It is a classical exercise, for a classically trained horse. Though left to the highly experienced, this is an art in itself; where you are working on the ground and using the same aids as if you where riding. Work in hand helps to develop lateral movement and to aid in flexion. IE Shoulder in. Also to teach the horse movements like piaffe or Spanish walk. Again done correctly the results are clear.
