Introduction to Liberty (Level 1) - Fri 19 & Sat 20
Participants work through the Ground Control series, based on safe, foundational skills, regardless of your discipline, age or goals. 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, setting boundaries for your horse to keep you safe and help you achieve the respect you need to create that connection. Exercises will focus on moving the hindquarters, shoulders, achieving lateral flexion both at the stand still and on the circle and changing directions (the switch).
Body Control Under Saddle (Level 1) - Sun 21
Dan shows riders how to successfully transition from the ground to quite difficult body movements under saddle, while maintaining a well minded balanced and soft horse, that will be obedient to both the riders’ aids and cues, giving the rider skills and confidence to help work through whatever it is that they may find in a ridden situation, then focus on the horses’ softness in the bridle and obedience to the riders’ legs.
9am - 4pm each day. Fence sitters welcome.
