LIBERTY CLINICS FOCUS:

*Improve the connection, responsiveness, relaxation and posture.

*Gain clarity of cues and techniques.

*Learn new maneuvers, including but not limited to the different sizes of liberty circles, transitions and lateral maneuvers.

*Get inspired during demos and immersed in the hands on process.

Who is the PFT clinic for?

 

*Whoever seeks a better understanding of how to help their horse find self-carriage and eventually sustain it on their own.

*For the person who is tired of their horse leaning on them, on the lead line or on the reins, who sees the tension in their horse but doesn't know how to resolve it, who has struggled lowering their horse's head, because their horse always brings their head right back up and/or who doesn't want to use tie downs and martingales, but would rather train towards a natural self carriage.

*For the person who likes to use a nice balance between a positive and negative reinforcement while working with their horse.
