Liberty Clinics

195a6325-xl

When you take off the halter and lead line, you are left with the TRUTH!

You’ll learn how to MOTIVATE your horse to connect with you – to want to be with you – so that he pays attention to your requests. Then, you’ll master basic skills you need to CONTROL your horse’s body parts and movement. Once you have those basic skills built in and you understand how to move his personal space around, then it is time for some high-level Liberty COMMUNICATION – where the real fun begins!

Topics to be Covered: Whatever you and your horse need. Here are some examples:
Respect issues (biting, nipping, crowding, leading, standing quietly, etc), trailer loading (confidence and consistency getting on and off), mounting, tacking up, showmanship, lunging, trail obstacles (bridge, pedestal, poles, barrels, water obstacles), bridleless riding, confidence building (tarps, spray bottles, plastic bags), liberty (getting a connection, maintaining a connection, creating soft cues) and a ton more.

Pre-requisites: It would greatly accelerate your learning if you and your horse have a basic understanding of fore and hind quarter yielding, being accustomed to steady and rhythmic pressure, be confident with your tools, know how to back up without you moving with them, and come to you without moving your feet.

Equipment Needed: Rope halter, 12-foot heavy lead rope, 22-foot lead rope (not a lunge line) or heavy lead rope, not light weight, horseman stick and string. (If you do not own these items we do have a limited few to lend out for the clinic).

Clinic Cost?

You can come to a clinic with your horse for hands on instruction. If you are unable to bring your horse you can watch the action as a spectator, or some venues allow you to rent a horse for the day or weekend. We offer one day, and two day clinics. There is a local clinic host for each clinic who can answer all your questions. Check out the locations in our Events Schedule. Registration forms can be filled out online or printed out. Clinic Prices are posted below.

The Clinic Cost is made up of three parts:

  1. Instruction Fee – the cost of the education.
  2. Facility Fee – the cost to rent the facility for the event.
  3. Travel Fee – a set per rider fee to offset a portion of the Instructors traveling expenses.

While the Facility and Travel Fees vary depending on location and distance, the minimum Instruction fee of $700.00/day for up to 10 participants ($70.00 per participant) for a 1 Day Clinic or $1300.00/day for up to 10 participants ($65.00 per participant per day – $130.00 total) for the for a 2 Day Clinic. Most clinics run 6 hrs in length each day unless they are split experience levels, which are two groups that go for 3 hrs each. All prices include HST.

Travel Fee is calculated door to door mileage at a rate of 0.45 per km. If | am required to stay in a hotel for the night then I also factor in that rate as well – looking for the best rate possible.
