Before introducing a young horse to a saddle, it’s a good practice to use the ground driving technique to teach basic commands, bit and neck pressure. This is done by equipping the horse with saddle or surcingle, a bridle and reins, but with no rider. Schneiders offer various premium ground driving equipment for effective training. These items include training surcingles, long lines, blinker hoods, a horse driving harness for training, cruppers, long line accessories and action chains.

Dura-Tech® Ground Driving Gear

Our Dura-Tech training tools include lightweight and durable neoprene and nylon training surcingles, MCR long lines made from mountain climbing rope, tubular cotton web long lines and airflow or fleece surcingle pads. There are also single link lightweight action chains that offer a safe way to convince horses to step higher and blinker hoods to keep them focused.

Billy Royal® and Premier Training Equipment

Billy Royal offers multi-ring training surcingles, made from premium leather. It’s helpful for all experience levels and is a versatile training aid. Leather cruppers keep surcingles from sliding forward, and can also be used with a saddle. The long line bit connector is used to teach horses to accept a double bridle. It can be used with long lines or draw reins. The EZ long line adapter converts any western saddle into one that can accommodate additional training rings. From Premier, we have the quick hitch training harness system, which can be used with beginning ground training and experiencing driving levels. The company also offers an economical, lightweight web and leather training surcingle, multi-ring surcingle and dual western tie strap surcingle.

These premium training tools are designed for long-lasting durability and effectiveness
