Got some much needed rain. Also today we achieved something great which is lunging at liberty, what an amazing experience. · #horse#pferd#horses#pferde#atliberty#horseliberty#libertytraining#naturalhorsemanship#horsemanship

Took Jess to an arena today, first time she's ever been in one. We had a few spooks and a rear when a horse left the arena and she tried to follow, but she hacked there and back like a superstar. We even had a little canter. #liberty #atliberty #freestyle #libertyhorse #training #hor#horsening #rehabilitation #newforest #newforesttype #horse #pony #freedom #naturalhorsemanship #positivereinforcement #bridleless #backing #starting #greenhorse #bitless #bitlessriding #rescuepony #rescuehorse

Brave girl having her first hack in a while, just started her back into work for her owner.

I look like a damn gremlin lol but here’s a little clip from our latest play session. I put the blanket on the ground hoping it would cause some movement variation but alas... he wanted to only smell it. Oh well. He’s really good at playing now. I haven’t managed to catch his very best moves on camera (like leaping into the air and spinning). #liberty #libertytraining #atliberty #trianing #hor#horsening #clickertraining #positiverenforcement #horse #equine #movement #biomechanics

Log pile work and back over the ditch. She is really just coming along so great. A 5 minute training session with a horse that involved no force and no fighting. Just her doing what she thought I wanted. I love clicker training!#horseagility #obstacles#atliberty#freewilltraining#clickertraininghorses #positivereinforcement #operativeconditioning

#curlysage and I did a lovely ground work session today #atliberty and enjoyed the focus that comes with the grass bring completely trapped under a thick layer of ice. Mr. Super Attentive came when I called him from over 100 feet away at one point. Here is a shorter distance join up, but I think you can see how "with me" he really was today. . . . #curlyhorse #curlyhorses #orangeisthenewblack #naturalhorsemanship #hor#horsestagram #cheval #cheveaux #pfe#pferd> #pferd #cavallo #horsesofinsta #mybeautifulhorse #myhearthorse #horsesheal #parelli #horse

The thoughtful devil. Postet that one earlier already, when the sketch was made. I was browsing my sketchbook for some drawing that deserved colouring like i always do when i dont want to start something new. This was the first drawing i did after i arrived in New Zealand. Black inkpen and watercolour on coated paper, also i didnt erase the pencil sketch this time. Since i am travelling my setup for painting shrank to the most necessary things. One Brushpen and a small palette of colours is enough. #tho#thoughtfull #thoughtful #devil #pen #inkpen #watercolour #pencil #drawing #painting #surreal #surrealism #character #art #artist #atliberty

When your “low energy” horse decides to prove to you that they aren’t actually low energy but instead have a negative association with being ridden and being forced to do work. 😆🐎💨 — Pumpkin and I have been experimenting a lot with play, total autonomy, encouraging high energy, and basically doing the exact opposite of everything she’s ever known about “training” and what “training” looks like. Sometimes that’s on the ground and sometimes that’s in the saddle, but I’ve literally been “throwing in the reins” and letting Pumpkin take over command. The results have been thrilling! . . While we’ve been using positive reinforcement and clicker training for awhile now, there was still this underlying sense of “control” I was hold on to. I was still doing everything within my power to obtain the results “I” wanted, to do “my” plan. We had made a lot of progress with switching over to positive reinforcement but there was still something missing... we just weren’t making progress and we were both still very frustrated. . . Once again I’d found myself in a place in my horse training education where I decided to just “Go for it. Worst case scenario it’ll be a failed experiment .” (The last time I had been in that position was when first trying out clicker training with horses.. and you see how that went 😉) At first it looked like a whole bunch of nothing. We just stood there... for what seemed like forever. There were a whole lot of no’s and it wasn’t super pretty to begin with, but slowly, oh so slowly, we’ve been unleashing the high energy, athletic, enthusiastic, drama queen within. She’s gone from plodding around the arena with flat back ears when forced, to fun and energetic! I didn’t even get her rearing spins and beautiful at liberty side by side trot work with me on camera. Under saddle she’s been so much more forward and fun. No more kicking and prodding, I just set the reins down and say “take me where you want to go” and she does! Just a couple days ago Pumpkin cantered under saddle without being asked! It was so thrilling! That’s something that would take immense amounts of poking and prodding to achieve before. . . .

I'm working hard today in my office preparing manuals for our upcoming Horse Wisdom Yoga Certified Teacher Training program. It's so amazing watching this vision manifest of partnering with the Horse to guide people on the journey of healing and self-discovery. The best part about it is that I get to watch the Horse Teachers from my office window as they bask in the light of the winter sun. I will be taking a break shortly to go out and join them! 📚🙏🐴💫❄️☀️ #yogateachertraining #yogaalliance #farmsanctuary #sacredspace #hea#healingwithhorses #hor#horseasteacher #atliberty #choice #wellnessretreat #hor#horsewisdomyoga #thebigredbarn #horseexperience #unique #experiential #lastingimpression #horseasteacher #awakenwithhorses #healingwithhorses #reikiwithhorses #equinereiki #animalcommunication #horsewisdomyoga #yogawithhorses #healingretreat #yogaretreat

Doodle No. 5. Sketched without any idea of what it's going to be. Most of the time this kind of drawings are my favourites. Black inkpen, watercolour and a white marker on coated paper. The paper has a cool effect on the watercolour, gives a nice texture to it. #doo#doodle/a> #doodle #sketch #drawing #painting #fantasy #sur#surreal/a> #surreal #watercolour #pen #pencil #art #artist #atliberty

I know it's been a while but I forgot the login to my account 😂 taken me this long to get back into it. You'll never know what surprises you'll come across when out with your horses! But thanks to positive reinforcement we had no worries!!

#curlysage hasn't gotten a lot of exercise lately because we've had terribly icy #pas#pasture> for weeks now. Luckily things softened up a bit a few days ago & Sage was able to run around some. He's a bit stiff and gimpy from lack of exercise. Also at one point there's hooves flying!! Despite how it looks he was far enough away that I didn't feel worried.

My baby boy💕 we did some liberty work tonight and he acted like he's been doing it for years. So happy that I decided to go get him. It was so worth the drive.

Surreal World 1. Progress. Getting courageuos filling the spaces with black. I should do this more often, it's much faster than doing all the shading😅 well besides water is always to draw, i need to to pay more attention to that topic. #surrealworld #surrealism #fantasy #1 #progress #fantasyworld #improvisation #drawing #pen #paper #art #artist #atliberty

CONNECTION~ Preparing for our client to arrive. She is a regular client here on our farm and had shared with me that she was feeling a connection to Malachi as her Teacher today. When I went down to check in with the Herd, he was the first to come see me. He stayed with me for quite some time and then walked to the gate and looked up at our driveway, as if waiting for her arrival. As always, I'm really looking forward to seeing how her experience unfolds. ❤️ #hea#healingwithhorses #hor#horseasteacher #atliberty #choice #wellnessretreat #hor#horsewisdomyoga #thebigredbarn #horseexperience #unique #experiential #lastingimpression #horseasteacher #awakenwithhorses #healingwithhorses #reikiwithhorses #equinereiki #animalcommunication #horsewisdomyoga #yogawithhorses #healingretreat #yogaretreat

Had a good pony play session this weekend with Luke Gingerich at Born To Fly Stables! Really enjoyed his demo and getting to watch everybody's lesson. Felt great getting back to my normal horesy shenanigans since my foot break. Got Gus really drawing into me and had a ton of forward impulsion at liberty which was something I've been trying to obtain. Going to work on getting some flexion in our liberty circles. We'll see what happens! #atliberty #libertyhorse #horsesofinstagram

A surreal world 1. I dont draw as much as is wanted to since i'm travelling New Zealand. But when i do its still mostly surrealism. This piece is an improvisation. No plan at all, i just put the pen on the paper and let it go. #asurrealworld #sur#surreald #surrealism #surreal #art #drawing #pen #blackandwhite #artist #atliberty

The other thing we did for the first time today.... riding bridleless! Truly an amazing horse. Even though we had some serious steering issues he was totally awesome for doing this for the first time. We will get better and better. Also, he’s literally so gorgeous 😍 #liberty #atliberty #libertytraining #horsetraining #training #fitness #dressage #horseriding #riding #love #intrinzin #intrinsic #bonding #equestrian #equine

The very beginnings of teaching the panther walk/Spanish walk. I’m so proud of him, he’s caught in just a few sessions! I like how he’s shifting his weight back so he can elevate his shoulders. #pantherwalk #spanishwalk #dressage #lib#libertyning #liberty #atliberty #horse #horsetraining #fitness #training #love #bonding #equine #equestrian #intrinsic #intrinzin

#barntime today. #curlysage did a little online work, trotting & disengaging, while the #blm#blm#blmang & #connemara got to spend some time #atliberty . I think we had an #ahamoment when the #connemarapony realized I was talking to him & asking for go or stop even when he was 100 ft away! Both of them came in & whuffled on me & seemed so happy for the exercise both physically & mentally. Sage mostly wanted to eat, surprise surprise... . . #curlyhorse #brightorangehalter #orangehalter #blm #blmmustang #bossmare #connemaragelding #connemarasofinstagram #blmmustangsofinstagram #curlyhorsesofinstagram #horsesofinsta #cheval #pferd #pferde #cavallo #horselover #equine

Old photo of #curlysage because it was almost dark the last time I was out at the #barn . It was 53° on Friday & Sage got to run around since all the snow melted away and the rivers created hadn't frozen into ice yet. We did some #atliberty work and Sage was so excited to do transitions off of hand signals, to change direction & back up and #canter off in the other direction. It made me realize how much I miss working with my horse! . . #hor#horsessta #horsesofig #horses #cavallo #cheval #pfe#pferde #pferd #curlyhorse #snowypony #mybeautifulhorse #myhearthorse #horsesheal #barnlife #naturalhorsemanship #horsesofinstagram #horselover #cantering #crazyweather #winterhorse #winterishere #thosecurls

BIGGEST pet peeve is when people say all barrel horses are crazy. Train you a horse that can do both 💪🏻💋
