Liberty training with your horse is crucial to all other riding and training. What is liberty? It’s bonding exercises that bring you and your horse closer together so that training for other things becomes a fun activity for both of you. If you’ve ever tried to train a horse you’ve just met, you may have experienced some trouble.
Riding and training a horse is most efficient when there is a mutual bond of trust and understanding. If the horse doesn’t want to hang out with you, to put it simply, then you’re not going to make any progress. These huge majestic creatures are some of the most amazing animals on the planet.
When we ride them, it should only ever be a result of a strong bond and a mutual desire that both you and the horse have to get out there and feel the wind in your hair.
