Journey to Freedom
Enjoy riding your horse with Confidence, Trust and Partnership
Anything is possible when you trust each other
Trust develops when you have a deep understanding of each other. As we all know the test of a relationship is how that relationship stands up when things are going wrong when the pressure is on – when things get stressful. And that is what most of us are worried about with our horses – the “what if…..”
But what if you knew how to handle a stressful situation and get your horse relaxed and attentive when he starts to get worried and tense? What a relief that would be right? To know that you had a plan to get you and your horse out of trouble – anywhere, anytime.
A plan that works for those worrying times but also causes connection and trust to develop and gave you a solid foundation for performance.
So how do our riders achieve amazing FREEDOM riding their horses?
At the Clinic we teach our riders, (from beginners to pros), to take the time to observe and understand how their horse thinks, moves and communicates. We show them how to observe his expression so they can “see what happens before what happens, happens” This is how you keep out of trouble and in the FUN ZONE with your best friend.
We will show you how to watch for those changes in expression that the horse uses to communicate his thoughts, feelings and intent. At the Journey to Freedom Clinic, you will learn the exercises that get you in time with his movement, create softness and suppleness and have him feeling good. Influence his mind by influencing his body – influence his body by influencing his mind.
As well as having a great ride, there is another massive benefit from being able to do this – your horse will enjoy being around you and will like and trust you. If you can get him to a place where he is calm and relaxed when he feels worried or tense than he will look to you for guidance, his number one, his safe place. When this happens you have a horse you can trust, a horse you can rely on – and he can rely on YOU. Something ALL equestrians want.

I wanted to say how lovely it was to be with a couple who are so perfectly matched and complement each other. Together you cover everything.
I can see how you fell in love – the respect you get from horses you also get from each other.
I loved watching you work and the dressage yesterday Jane – it was so smooth and you made it look so effortless. It was divine.
I look forward to doing another course in the future.
