February 19-21 / Introduction to Liberty Clinic
Time & Location
About the Event
In the winter months, Liberty is a fantastic way to add variety to your horses work and has very practical applications that can drastically improve our horse's ground and ridden work. Whether you have a yearling or a steadily going performance or sport horse, Liberty provides the horse the opportunity to refine their focus and understanding on the slightest of details, offers a fun atmosphere and predictable steady progression that can accelerate their confidence. For the human, integrating Liberty work is a prime opportunity to build our awareness of body position, energy, clarity in communication and understanding as well as build an incredible connection with our horse.
This is a 3 Day Clinic (Friday-Sunday) from 9am-4pm each day.
Weather is no obstacle as we are equipped with an Indoor Arena & Round Pen.
Over the course of the 3 days we will work with our horses to establish a strong foundation of the Liberty Concepts. This will range from learning specific skills such as Mark Training, to refining and enhancing specific ground work that directly correlates to how we will communicate with our horse at liberty as well as exercises in the round pen and more.
This is a small group format clinic that will be extremely personal and individualized to each horse and person. Colton will work 1 on 1 with you throughout the weekend so you can ensure you will head home with a strong understanding and plan for how to continue your liberty success beyond the clinic.
From Pammyt Tiemeyer, Past Liberty Clinic Participant: "What a great weekend! Thanks to you, Maredith and Teton for hosting this! We learned so much information, I’m still processing and finding that I want to do things differently here at home!
