Horse trainer Jonathan Field has made a name for himself with his unique ability to give people simple, understandable, doable steps that lead to working with a horse "at liberty" in a safe and progressive manner. At its most basic, many think of liberty as "playing" with a horse without halters, leads, or other tack. True liberty, says Field, is much more than simply removing equipment and stepping outside the pen or arena: It is moving with your horse, communicating only with intention, and creating a seamless, smooth, and rhythmic dance. "When you do liberty right, you become one with the herd," he writes. "And not only do you develop an amazing connection with your horse, but it's one of the most fun things you will ever do."
Developing communication skills and your relationship with your horse through liberty benefits all that you do with your horse--whether on the ground or in the saddle; whether competing or riding for pleasure. Quick responses to subtle cues, clear aids, and a relaxed and attentive horse: These are the keys to liberty, and they are also objectives when we ride, drive, or work with the horse on the ground around the barn. Liberty, therefore, teaches you to be a better horseman. With Jonathan Field's step-by-step liberty training method, you learn to have a better "feel," to reward the horse sooner, and to time your aids just right to ensure you get the response you want. Plus, you discover how to approach things from the individual horse's perspective--an important key to getting a horse to act because he wants to, rather than because he has to. This fabulously illustrated book, featuring hundreds of action-packed photographs taken on Field's spectacular ranch in British Columbia, gives you practical and fun ways to teach your horse to genuinely like being with you in all that you do together--not through use of force or by bribing with treats, but because he feels safer and more secure by your side.
