One Great Liberty Retreat!

Posted by Lynn Elston on August 20, 2014 at 2:45 PM

Greetings, Herdmates...

This past weekend's 3 day Liberty Immersion Retreat was just plain wonderful, for everyone involved!  There were four guests and their horses.  Each horse-human couple already had a nice connection between them, so our weekend was spent tweaking behaviors to deepen what already existed, and also pointedly having fun within the bond by some imaginative playing!

Brenda has taken some perfect photos of the three days, so I will let the pics and their captions tell the story.  And, Retreaters, please add your own comments, stories, experiences in the comments below...we would all love to hear from you directly!!

Nancy, Brenda and I really enjoyed having everyone here this past weekend, we learn SO much from these events, as well!  And from what our guests said at wrap-up, we will be offering this opportunity to go deep and refresh your relationship and your imagination again in 2015.

Our next event is the Robin Gates 2-Day Liberty Seminar coming up on September 13-14, 2014.  There is still room for two auditors ($275 each) and we are also looking for one more horse-human couple, preferably a horse that has not had a lot of Liberty Training before, so we can watch Robin establish the connection.  If you are interested in attending, as auditor or with your horse, please contact me through this website or give a call: 360-668-0530.  We would love to have you join us!

Lynn and the wonderful pictures by Brenda sum it up. It was a wonderful retreat. Just what I needed at the end of a hectic couple of months was some time to relax with my horse, Summer. The proof of the relationship took place again today. As our new barn is not quite complete I intended to have my farrier trim the horses in our outdoor arena this morning. Just as he arrived we could see the rain moving across the valley so decided it was time to bring the horses in and initiate the barn. I know my farrier does not like working with wet horses so I quickly tied the 3 mares to the arena rail and ran to empty the barn stalls of the multitude of tools we are currently storing in them. In my haste I left the arena gate open. Summer managed to get herself untied and the farrier saw her walk out of the arena. He told me to "hurry, go catch her!". I said, "no worry, she will come to me". I stayed right where I was. She left the other two horses, walked past the fields of grass and came right up the driveway and across the gravel to me and stopped! My farrier is in his 70's and has been working with horses all his life. He saw something new today that will have him pondering for awhile. As for me, having my horse chose me over the other horses, green grass or even more thankfully, the road, is all I need. Thanks to Lynn, Nancy, Brenda as well as the other great horse-human teams that shared the retreat with us.
