Ich bin so verliebt in meinen Pferdeherren 😍 Heute bin ich ihn wieder geritten und wir haben leichte Dressurarbeit gemacht. Er war so fleißig und aufmerksam. Erst wollte ich ihn mit normaler Trense reiten, aber habe sofort gemerkt, dass er keine Lust auf das Gebiss hat und so bin ich aufs Sidepull umgeswitcht. Er war der Oberhammer, wenn man bedenkt es war erst das 3 mal ohne Gebiss und er lief zwischen durch schon in einer tollen Anlehnung 😱 Dazu kam, dass er trotz viel Ablenkung und (normalerweise) gruseligen Sachen total entspannt und bei mir war 😊 Einfach ein Traum dieses Pferd ❤️ #liberty #libertyhorse #libertytraining #bitless #bittlessbridle #bitlessriding #gebisslos #gebisslosreiten #baumlos #baumlosersattel #barefootsaddle #soulhorse #seelenpferd #herzenspferd #wallach #pferd #freizeitpferd #offenstallhaltung #bodenarbeit #reiten #horsesofinstagram #europaspferde #deutschlandspferde #hoovesoffreedom

Second part of our first liberty show😊 this was a bit later, so here he's been settled a bit more than in the first part☺ it didn't work perfectly anyway, normally he can do a way better Spanish walk/ trot and stuff😅 but he did what he could so I'm very satisfied with my lovely boy❤❤ *

The beginning of training "fetch" - Another throw back to when I was pregnant with my now three month old baby girl ☺️. I decided to not include this "session" in River's progress series because it's not directly related to her prep training for under saddle but it IS a fun game! And, if you want to break it down everything we work on really does connect and prepare for or improve under-saddle work. Whether it's physically or mentally.. and in this case the game of fetch is a fun activity that emotionally and mentally engages the horse. Improving willingness, drive, bravery, curiosity, intelligence, trainability and so on. This is a great game to teach horses on stall rest, or horses that can't be ridden (retired horses, young horses, etc). And once you have the basics of clicker training down its pretty easy!
.
.
.
Here what I'm doing is asking her to "target" the jolly ball. I want her to touch it, investigate it, and eventually put her mouth on it. She's naturally a very mouthy curious filly so it comes easy for her, but for some horses it takes some time to build up this behavior. Rewarding each little effort as they offer it. You don't have to do this with a jolly ball either, any object that the horse can pick up will work! A rag, toy.. you name it. Just make sure it's safe.
.
.
.
Next I started moving it to the ground, asking her to approach it away from my body, and eventually biting at it again. From this point we will work on adding distance, having her pick it up, and then finally having her bring it back to me. .
.
.
I unfortunately haven't had time to continue practicing this behavior since this video, but I hope to pick it back up soon! Once we've "completed" the behavior (when she can go and fetch the object and return it to me all in one motion) I'll make a "how to" video from start to end if you guys are interested ☺️ .

Playing with a weight shift back and starting the forward movement from there. Alf is quite skilled with lifting his chest but can't incorporate a big front leg move yet. The clip is showing consecutive sequenzes, I just cut out the feeding parts. In the end Alf is not holding back with his opinion regarding too many repeats of an exercise. 😂 I love him for being so open and honest with me! 🖤😄 •• #icelandichorse #opinionatedpony #knowswhathewants #weightshiftback #findingtheup #inforwardmovement #witherlift #positivereinforcement #libertytraining #autonomy #thehorsehasavoiceandachoice #andthatstoberespected #isländer #gewichtsverlagerung #nachhinten als #startderbewegung #versammlung #positiveverstärkung #autonomie

Early bird catches the horse
First walk across the pasture. We had to pass our herd leaders Stjardna and Kátur. First he wanted to go away as a natural reaction. Then I made Kátur move away from us and Lagsi stood with me. Good boy. To get out of Stjardnas reach he moved behind me. After that adventure he could relax. What an exciting workout.

Der erste Spaziergang über die Wiese. Wir mussten an den Herden Chefs Stjardna und Kátur vorbei. Zuerst wollte er ausweichen als natürliche Reaktion. Dann ließ ich Kátur weggehen und Lagsi blieb bei mir. Guter Junge. Um aus Stjardnas Reichweite zu kommen ging er hinter mich. Nach dem Abenteuer konnte er Entspannen. Was für ein spannendes workout

Sometimes, I can't believe that it has only been such a short amount of time that I've owned this bean. We've competed in our first dressage test together, have started jumping 60cm, plus slightly higher than that in the cross-country course (in lessons, not competing), already have a few tricks under our belt, and have started to get correct canter leads. I also realised today that he hasn't tried to bite. 😂 That alone is a massive achievement. Now to try bridleless riding!

My love, my love, oh my sweet little dove!

I am so touched by this beautiful drawing @victoriakramorova_art did of my darling Misa and I💖it still blows me away every time I look at it! I can't get enough of Misa portraits, she just has this special something about her that is so authentic in her emotions...it translates so well into art. I love it! Thank you again Victoria, this is gorgeous!

He is such a 🌟 I didn't believe he would stay with me, when their is a mare on the other side of the fence. I thought he would run off to check out everything else, but he didn't. I give him too little credit! He did have one crazy run around the arena to show-off on his own, but came back to me afterwards to get his carrot 🥕 We had alot of fun! Since Duke is still out I will bring Rhaego to the Michelle Wolf clinic in October and I simply can't wait! We will work on simple easy stuff in the meantime to give him tons of confidence. And I will try hard to not overdo it 🙈😂 I have tons of photos from yesterdays training session - finally something new to post 😅🙏 PC: @lisagrimnes 🌹 #instahorse #horsesofinstagram #pintohorse #norskvarmblod #stallion #youngster #groundwork #academicartofriding #akademiskridkonst #libertytraining #libertyhorse #straightnesstraining #equestrianphotography #horsephoto #equine #equestrianlifestyle

There is so less time for Palmyro at the moment and I feel so sorry for this😔 The past days he didn't feel good I think, as he was very stiff and not motivated to move.
A few weeks ago he did not want to do anything with me, than followed a time of totally enthusiasm, much will to move and a positive way of crazyness and now bad times again. Hopefully this bad phase will be over soon. But I think there is a connection between having less time for him and his stiffness. Yesterday we luckily had some time to went for a walk with @mysoulmate._ and afterwards I did some streaching exercises with him. During the walk Palmyro was extremly unmotivated, walked very slow and stiff but the streaching exercises were a benefit for him😊

She's so precious ❤️❤️ slide > for more.
What's your opinion of western pleasure, barrel racing, and pole bending? Put your opinion in the comments below ☺️. I believe that it's okay as long as there is not abuse involved. No harsh yanking, no star fishing, no harsh spurs digging into the horses side. There are a lot of bad western riders but there are a lot of great ones that actually treat there horses well. I believe that they are all good as long as you do not inflict pain to the horses. ☺️

💕 Listening 💕. Listening is so important when it comes to working with horses - especially in liberty training! I was working with Phoenix today and he started to completely ignore anything I was asking him. Instead of overreacting and applying more and more pressure on him, I stopped and tried to observe his body language. I soon realized that he wasn't trying to be defiant, but was simply confused and started to shut down. This is why I love liberty training! Most horse trainers would override what the horse is feeling and trying to communicate, and force them to cooperate. This just creates more issues. Instead, by taking time to listen, I can change the way I'm communicating to help Phoenix better understand! 💕💕💕

Little clip of doing some liberty training with my yearling before the storm hit🌪
This is our third day trying liberty work together. I'm really excited with how she's doing, one of my main goals with it is to strengthen our connection and bond, I am already seeing changes.
At the trot I have to keep a tad bit of pressure on the lead, but at the walk I don't need a lead hardly at all.
Can't wait until we can do this (and other freestyle stuff) without a halter or anything! So fun to play with her doing these "games"...💞

Bester😍

Kleine Reitpause 🙈 Limo ist sooo ein übler Fall manchmal, wir sind noch dabei die entstandenen Baustellen durch die Verletzungspausen meinerseits aufzuarbeiten. Das machen wir zur Zeit durch 3 Tages-Kuren quasi. Drei Tage V/A auf Trense, viele Übergänge und Training der Oberlinie, momentan heute im 3. Tag Longentraining Übergänge Versammlung/Dehnungshaltung, mal sehen was ab morgen dran ist. Ich tendiere zum vorerst Abwechseln dieser beiden Trainingspunkte. Hauptaugenmerk liegt auf der Geraderichtung, wie immer. :)

Another part of our liberty training. He stays with me, even though another horse tried to chase him. As you can see, even ground obsticales are no problem for us 💪
Ein weiterer Teil des freien Trainings. Er bleibt bei mir, auch wenn ein anderes Pferd versucht ihn zu verjagen. Wie ihr seht, selbst Boden Hindernisse sind kein Problem für uns 💪

Does anyone on here practice lucid dreaming? I used to quite a lot, and now every once in a while even when I'm not trying, I will experience a beautiful, powerful lucid dream. At the risk of sounding completely insane, I believe that sometimes these dreams come from the connections I find within the herd. During these dreams, one horse will be my guide, and I wake up feeling like I learned something from them- especially things that I haven't been grasping in wakefulness.

Last night I had one of these dreams. I shared it with Drago. We journeyed back to my childhood home, and then to the Horse Park where I used to compete a lot. It felt like a reconciliation, as I rode bareback through the grounds with just a halter and line held slack in my hands. We wandered down to the sprawling cross country course where I once felt so much pressure and expectations.. As we galloped the paths cut through the tall golden grass, we settled into this effortless pace. I could feel the wind whipping his mane into my face, the heat of his body rising through me, hear the rhythmic hoof beats beating like a drum. I could smell the sweat building on his neck, feel the joy he felt running free, hear his breathing like a dragon, matching his drumming stride. I had no fear, and neither did he. We flowed with no tension, just the healing power of running for the sake it.

We galloped like this for what seemed like eternity, following new trails until we emerged in unfamiliar land. From there he slowed and sped up at his own will, traversing hills and forests and sandy trails. Sometimes we walked, sometimes we galloped again, but I had this knowledge that he would carry me safely wherever we went. I didn't know where we were but I knew we would end up where we were supposed to be, and that was enough.

It was a beautiful gift to experience this dream, so vivid and so powerful, so cathartic and healing. I woke feeling the energy that still connected us, as if a string ran from my bedroom out to his pasture, linking our hearts and minds.

We did some tricktraining, liberty, groundwork, playing or whatever I have to call it, today. She was amazing!! So motivated to show off, also the crunches she did were sooo great!! And mountain goat!😍Love it! When we were done we had to walk trough the cows ( they were going inside to be milked and for the night) and they started to lick Tarissa hahaha. Tarissa didn't care anything about it tho😂 she had ofcourse seen cows lots of times before and also walked trough them very often already but the cows never were that touchy as today😅 well they are not scared of each other for sure😉

A true partnership is when your horse comes running when he sees you. #libertytraining #naturalhorsemanship #gypsyvanner #horse
