WHAT TO EXPECT AT A LIBERTY CLINIC
The morning commences at 9:00 am with a brief chat moving then into charging our horses up to the bridging signal; the foundation of this clinic is positive reinforcement.
Foundation Groundwork exercises are introduced, establishing just where we are with our horses and a starting point.
Leading Exercises, controlling the hind and shoulders, the backing is all established on the line and then with a neck rope.
We have a play with a few obstacles building our horse's confidence in us and teach our horses a simple trick.
For those interested, we will discuss how to use positive reinforcement under the saddle.
On the final afternoon, we have an opportunity to work one-on-one with Mandy removing our lead ropes and practising advanced leading.
