View the 2021 Clinic Dates
Dig deep into the human-horse connection. Learn to have your horse intimately follow your focus, energy and presentation in both the groundwork and riding. You'll build a team with your horse based on trusted leadership - in the way the horse understands it.
We've had clients in our Progressive Clinics work on liberty exercises and guess what? They're hooked as soon as they discover how it can change their riding for the better. Just imagine: asking your horse to perform balanced turns, gait changes and lateral work with a completely engaged horse free of stress and tension.
Imagine teaching a horse to work a cow, perform a reining or dressage manoever without ever pulling on a rein or kicking. It's not hard when your horse views you as a lead horse, and you communicate in their native lanuage of space and energy.
Clinic Focal Points
- Using the rein to create balance instead of control/brace
- A horse that intimately follows your focus and energy
- An exploration of balance, it's importance in riding, and how to create it
- Developing your leadership so horses see you as a trusted leader
- Experiencing the freedom that comes when you ride a horse that's free of tension
The liberty clinic focuses on these elements. We'll work on strengthening your leader-follower agreement with your horse, delve into the horse's mind and anatomy to really learn how he works and master our communication.
A horse that follows your focus, energy and intent.
Mutual pride and success!
Fun - and sometimes hilarious - liberty exercises.
