Intro to Liberty – Shannock, RI
August 6, 2021 @ 9:00 am - August 8, 2021 @ 9:00 am
During the clinic, participants will work through the basic foundations of liberty work. The series is based on safe, foundational skills to help you and your horse start from the ground up. The clinic will begin with some exercises with a halter and lead rope on and then how you progress to working your horse fully at liberty. This foundational program is used whether we are starting colts, working with problem horses or focusing on the next liberty horse. You will be introduced to the techniques and cues to help better communicate to your horse. It sets the boundaries for your horse to keep you safe and help you achieve the respect that you need to create a better connection with your horse. Exercises will focus on moving the hindquarters, shoulders, achieving lateral flexion both at the stand still and on the circle and changing directions which we refer to as the switch.
