Liberty Level 1: Creating Strong Basics
Have you dreamed of working with your horse at liberty? Here at Álfadans we want to give you the tools you need to feel like you and your horse can figure it out together! This video package shows step by step the journey of Sif and Kvistur as we take them from no liberty training to accomplishing the building blocks of liberty work including leading at liberty, treat manners, beginning liberty circles, yielding and drawing the hind and front ends, leg yielding towards and away, bowing, spins as well as two theory lectures on liberty philosophy and equine learning theory! What makes our courses different is instead of showing you the finished product on a horse that already knows the material, we start from the beginning with horses who have never done liberty work before!
