Is your horse hard to catch? If you drop the rope do they run off or check in with you? Or is your horse constantly pushing into the halter when playing on line and looking out on the circle? These are all signs your horse is not connected to you. This is the perfect workshop for someone wanting to strengthen the relationship with their horse by developing a connection at liberty. Whether you have played at liberty before or not, this workshop will cover theory, simulations and practical sessions with your horse. You will learn how to read your horse, know what strategies to use when your horse is not connecting with you, from being hard to catch or leaving you mentally while playing, so you can develop a stronger connection.

What is Connection and do you have it? When you have a mental connection with your horse, you are attuned to your horse's feelings, responses and reactions.

In return, your horse feels your connection and is interested, calm, and inspired by it. The focus of the clinic will be on the ‘Core behaviours’ of the HTTH curriculum . Connection, Relaxation and Responsiveness. As a result you will gain more safety, trust, confidence, control and a whole new way of being with your horse. Everyone will enjoy learning and developing their ground and ridden skills with Jackie’s fun exercises and teaching style. Participants can choose whether they ride or not. Who is this clinic for: Anyone who is interested in developing their skills in Natural Horsemanship. From those beginning their horse/human partnership to those who are further in their journey.
