All horses in training will first learn the basics of handling on the ground before being ridden.   

The amount of time spent with ground work will be determined by the horse.  
  All horses have to be ready in their mind as well as their body to be able to understand and fulfill the owner/rider wishes.
  Beside learning to lead quietly,-- this means that a program of lunging, work in sidereins, and longlining must preface carrying a rider. 
The horse has to understand the aids, the gaits, and the equiptment.  He then learns to put this together with the trainer/teacher on his/her back. This gives the horse the time to mentally and physically adjust to his training, resulting in a happy and willing equine partner that is prepared for a long, productive, and healthy life.
