If he doesn’t whoa, then you’d better not go! Does your horse stop immediately? This is no doubt the most important basic command, as it means safety for both of you.
Groundwork sounds like a lot of effort, but it promises countless rewards! If your horse respects you when you’re on the ground, then he’ll know to obey you when you’re mounted.
Safety is something a lot of people learn by accident. Most of these mishaps are because we took shortcuts or missed crucial steps in training.
