    When working a horse at liberty it challenges the handler to rethink what they are doing. Often times when we think we are teaching the horse, if we are open minded, we realize the horse is teaching us. Sometimes it's just taking a step or two back and turning the back to the horse for a brief spell. He'll appreciate the release of pressure. Pressure isn't always about moving the horse, it could be about how you put the halter on, could it be done a better way? Is the horse pulling away a little or readily puts his nose in?

    I know, right? All those poor horses were saying, "Would you get OFF my hiney so I can back up?" Why did Pat allow this misdirective to be published? The fact that he did still makes me cringe.

    I hope that ALL the horses who were laboring under this have been relieved of the misdirective!

    When working a horse at liberty you don't need to be defenseless should the horse come at you. With liberty you remove the mental connection of being on a lead rope when the halter is removed. It hones the handlers skills in body language and directing the horse. If the handler keeps her energy low, so will the horse.

    My pony is getting better at liberty. I can take her into a large pasture full of grass and have her walk around at my shoulder, stop, back, turn on the hind/fore, trot on and lower her head. I still need a long dressage whip to cue her with, she's not quite in tune with me for us to go off pure body language yet but sometimes I feel us going that way, like me thinking about stopping, about to cue... and she just halts. Very cool.

    She does liberty way better after being ridden than beforehand. Any ideas why?

    Exactly. I think if I had originally started backing her the RIGHT way, instead of the *sit on her kidneys* way, she would back much better today.
