For most of my life I have been searching for lightness and harmony with horses, but I didn’t find it in Horsemanship methods of today– I found it in the old classical art of riding. But a glimpse of it comes from the late Bill Dorrance who did not work…
Learn to connect with horses from the heart through SPIRIT – MIND – BODY and develop a deep bond and communicate with horses through body language, energy and connection.
Become your horse´s personal trainer and educate your horse in Relationship based Art of Riding from Liberty to Piaff- bitless!! LIBERTY – IN HAND – BITLESS CLASSICAL DRESSAGE
Begin your relationship with the horse free without tack, ropes, roundpens or coersion, through natural herd rituals and shape your dreamhorse!
The unique, revolutionary way to work with horses without traditional pressure-release methods, dominance or force!
It is a non-dominant philosophy where the relationship starts with the horse free completely without tack and goes beyond Horsemanship methods. The horse communicaton is based on the horse´s natural language and herd behaviour rituals which builds a deep bond with the horse that leads to a spontaneous dance.
Carolyn Resnick from the movie “The path of the horse” has personally one on one, helped me develop the Foundation of my education program at her ranch in the United States. She learned the horses natural communication system from wild horses.
This horse communication is in line with the horses natural instincts all the way from basic work to advanced liberty work. We focus on the relationship and the performance will come magically! The horse is performing according to it´s free will and not because of coercion or manipulation. Learn a leadership that horses is drawn to!
Liberty (TRUE LBERTY) is the first cornerstone of the training programme to a high schooled riding horse. These interactions are achieved without any kind of tack and based on horses freedom of choice.
The result is a deep connection and expressions of joy and harmony, developed through mutual love and respect. Education is not based on the traditional pressure-and release methods.
Interactions begins with the horse free from the ground and leads on to Work In Hand and Bitless Classical Dressage from the old former school in academic/classical horsemanship with my concept “The Art of Lightness™ “. Lightness is not a goal! Lightness is here and now!
