True communication is achieved using gentle and effective ways to understand horses. These ways derive from understanding natural horse psychology and body language, interpreting that information, and incorporating it through our body language in a way they understand. Horses communicate constantly with each other using their body language and subtle cues and signs another would pick up on. In nature, a horse would approach or retreat from a horse depending on the cues the other horse would give; whether he is inviting him into his space, or pushing him out of his space/way.
A sound horse is a mentally stable horse, where the
Frame of Body = Frame of Mind
Meaning if a horse is busy in his mind, he will result with a busy body (fidgety, spooky, etc.).
Training always begins on the ground, as groundwork is the foundation of any training regime, and is strictly tailored to the horse and his needs at the time! Every horse is different!
A horse that is psychologically and emotionally balanced is only achieved once the horse is balanced mentally, physically, and emotionally/spiritually.

Behavior Assessment and Solutions
Assessing a horse's behavior and mental state to identify problems and finding solutions. During an assessment, the problem is identified and reported as a cause of concern.
This is a service personally catered to your horse's needs. The number of sessions needed for your horse to overcome fears or correct behavior patterns depends on your horse and his progress.
Depending on the problems identified, a program is customized specifically to tackle any issues reported to correct the unwanted and potentially dangerous behavior.
Note: We work with horses on their pace! Some horses take longer than others to correct a problem and maintain progress.
Desensitizing your horse to foreign/new objects that might cause him/her to spook or react. This works well for horses that spook easily or have problems with traffic, road sounds, jet and plane sounds, etc.
The program begins by desensitizing people and fine tuning the way they interact and communicate naturally in the herd for best results.
Our behavior solutions include a vast of specialization, starting with the basics and re-introducing natural communication to the horse. This special program also helps dangerous horse behavior and how to overcome behavior problems. What makes our program unique is that once the horse is trained, we train the rider/owner to communicate properly using the same natural techniques. Training your own horse builds a stronger and safer bond between you and your equine partner.
Colt starting is a program designed specifically for young foals/horses. It prepares them from catching in the field or approaching the stall and haltering to preparing them to go under the saddle. This program is extensive and the number of sessions depend on the progress of the horse.
Note: Young horses should never be ridden before the age of three! Preparing them on the ground is significant to their development and transition to going under the saddle.
Horse training kicks-off with introducing and perfecting the fundamentals of groundwork. Lunging your horse creates a correct bend in your horse that releases endorphins and tension, resulting in relaxation signs communicated via horse body language. The art of the lunge is the most significant exercise practiced by professionals and horse owners.
When leading your horse anywhere, you are walking "in-hand" with your horse. We don't realize how much our body language is contradicting our intention, or what we are asking of them, causing an undesirable response or reaction from your horse. Liberty Equine explains and trains you how to understand the use of "horse language" and interpreting it through body language while leading your horse gracefully and safely to where you need to go.
Loose Lead is a different way of leading your horse safely. Using a loose lead rope while your horse follows you, responding to your body language. Clear and safe communication strengthens your bond with your horse. When a horse feels safe with you, he/she will stay by your side because they want to, not because they are forced to. A horse that willfully follows you will work better with you and perform even better with a more stable state of mind.
Lunging a horse is for reasons that are generally misconceived. Trainers lunged horses thinking they need the horse to exert energy before they could ride them. While this theory is true for a horse of high temperament, lunging also permits the horse to bend in a true bend, allowing the horse to release endorphins that make him "feel good"
The horse responds to this "feel good" sensation by lowering his head/neck and curving his back versus a hollow back full of adrenaline; Fight/Flight Response
Driving is a part of groundwork, it teaches your horse how to stay within barriers; the "river bank" analogy. Driving prepares the horse for riding and prepares a horse to pull a carriage, if necessary, being mindful of the horse and working together in harmony. This also helps the rider develop soft hands without ever pulling on the face! Driving also helps people connect better with their horses on the ground, establishing a true connection and understanding your equine partner even better!
Our Horse owner programs help strengthen bonds between horse and human by creating a strong and clear channel of communication through horse body language. Students are trained to interpret information, read horse body language, and be able to apply that information using their own body language to communicate their requests. Novice beginner to top professional levels. we also offer a certification program. Your horse will thank you for this!

A program dedicated to training young horses. This is an intensive program where young horses are gently trained and introduced to light groundwork and progressing depending on the foal's needs, strengths and weaknesses, etc.
All horses are eligible for this program, regardless of age.
Horses are assessed to identify the problem and find solutions through working with the horse(s) to overcome them. Horses react in one of two situations, Fight or Flight response, which creates an adrenaline rush causing the horse to react dangerously if he/she can not "flight" from the situation and inevitably result in a "fight" response.
In most cases, we (humans) are the initial problem in dealing with horses and need to be aware of our body language and what we are truly communicating!

Lunging does a lot more than just get that excess energy out before riding! Lunging is extremely important as it strengthens the bond between human and horse, most importantly, it helps the horse release endorphins to make the horse feel good and become more relaxed and attentive.
Bailey is a hyper-sensitive big thoroughbred competition jumper. He hates tack and gets very stressed when dressing him with the surcingle and haler. Lunging Bailey makes him feel better and decreases his anxiety levels and making him feel more balanced and confident.
Loose Lead helps in dealing with distracted, stubborn, or rude behavior from your equine friends. Help keep them engaged, focused, and with you mentally and psychically following your lead by reading your body language. Establish a better bond, by communicating correctly using body language your horse understands!
Keeping Bailey's mind engaged helps him tremendously. He begins to relax and bow, releasing stress and exhibiting a "feel good" sensation with a curled tail, forward ears, a good bend, rounded body, and bowing. Using the 3 energies of push, block, and draw, helps Bailey understand my body language as i communicate in "horse language." Using these 3 energies, we help horses to release endorphins, minimize stress, and communicate clearly and safely while getting the correct message across.
Ground driving is another word for long lining. Long Lining is a more advanced skill acquired from horse and handler.
