It's all about connection! This course has helped both beginners and high level riders advance their horsemanship both on the ground in preparation for liberty, and riding.

By understanding how to better read and respond to your horse in any given moment, you'll fine-tune your communication on line in preparation for liberty, as well as under saddle. This is the beginning of developing the ultimate riding horse and liberty partner!

 

COURSE OUTLINE

  • Introduction to the fundamentals of Liberty Training by fine-tuning on line first.
  • Learn to accurately read your horse and respond appropriately using drive/draw concepts.
  • Begin the steps to liberty with "follow me", "follow my shoulder" and blend into a liberty circle program.
  • Improve your feel and timing both on line and under saddle to build your horse's confidence and trust in you as a leader.
  • Learn how to stretch your horse mentally to create a stronger connection with your horse.
  • Become a more precise and balanced rider as you fine-tune your rider position and equitation to help your horse find healthy relaxed movement.
‚úī Each clinic has a different dynamic of people and horses. Some lessons may be focused on more than others, including some not mentioned here. If one of these goals is important to you, please mention so at the beginning of the clinic.
