I was left totally inspired by the September instructor clinic. It was full of lightbulb moments for me and it was wonderful to catch up with Marijke and the other UK instructors and to see the progress we have all made over the summer. Marley was offering me the moon which was truly special.
In liberty training my takeaways were to really really REALLY - REALLY - show him that I appreciate him, that I understand him, and to be totally present, to feel him in every step, every request. It gave a whole new meaning to what is meant by 'inner feeling' and how powerful that can be.
And the same translates to work in hand, the stronger your inner picture and inner feeling the clearer your communication with the horse will be, the lighter the aids, so that the horse is free to offer self carriage of body and mind.
