Are you looking for truer connection with your horse? Have you tried many trainers and methods and found that you just aren’t getting the results that you are seeking? Are you dying to try liberty work but don’t know how to start? Come out to our day of exploring with horses and learn what is really possible when we connect with horses in their language.
Most people are unaware that horses are in conversation with us from the moment they see us and all the time we are with them – not just when we put the halter or saddle on or when we are paying attention to them. They read our demeanor, body language, energy, and emotional state constantly – like a newspaper – and communicate with us based on what we bring to them with our presence, minute to minute. A shift of weight from one foot to the other, a slight movement forward or backward, the nod of the head, or the swinging of our hips will speak volumes to them.
Whie the body language of the horse is different than ours, they don’t know that we don’t know how to speak it. We send them mixed messages unwittingly all the time and they, bless them, for the most part forgive us over and over again. When we learn the basics of how to speak ‘equus’ things change in a remarkable way and this opens the door to the possibility of real two-way communication.
Come out for a day of exploration and discover the evolutionary approach to equine connection that comes from speaking ‘horse’ to your horse instead of expecting your horse to speak human. We will explore the basics of equine language and culture on the ground. This will be ground work only – where the connection to your horse begins. There will be opportunity to be with horses at liberty and in contact to try out your ability to speak ‘equus’.
Enrolment is limited to 10 participants so book early! The fee for the day includes morning and afternoon refreshment breaks. Please bring a picnic lunch and your own notebook. Wear comfortable layered clothing suitable for the outdoors as we will spend much of the day outside with the horses. Boots or sturdy footwear is required.
