When you take the Feel and Release Techniques Course (8 lessons / 8 videos) developed and and taught by Leslie Desmond (in English) and Antonio Hidalgo (in Spanish) for the Feel of a Horse Legacy Project, your new connection with horses will have a "better feel" that leads to a safer, more accurate and harmonious way of getting along together. As your horse's owner and friend you are in the best position to help him learn how to relax as he remains focused keenly on your your decisions and actions, and even your thoughts.
Some of the highlights to enjoy during the 8 lesson course as you learn how to
-- shape the horse's capacity for mental and physical coherence
-- improve your groundwork skills and increase your safety.
-- ask for adjustments in speed, timing and posture using feel and release
-- teach your horse new things that will improve his responses
-- align together during the course in ways that allow you both to enjoy your potential as respectful partners
-- learn to how weave in a release-based respect and refined feel into the rest of your journey together
--engage the horse fully in the moment without adding pressure to your relationship
-- let go of the need for constant corrections and worry about what might happen next.
This work reaches horses at a comfortable place between curiosity and self-preservation, between dullness and anxiety. By learning how to think and work in the new ways that include the horse's point of view, Leslie shows you how to have a LOT more fun with your horse.
Suitable for trainers and riders of all disciplines.
