  1. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    So, I've recently been absolutely infatuated with Liberty training. I thought that one of my horses would be great at it. I probably shouldn't have had my expectations so high. Koko is a 16 year old American Quarter Horse standing at 14.2 hands tall. He is full of personality, and is a very...
  2. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    Hi! I came on to look for some advice on my horse. He has this thing where it looks like his leg is always filled. It doesn’t seem to bug him and doesn’t go away. The vet pretty much told us that it’s nothing. He doesn’t get ridden anymore (just because of his age). But the larger leg “issue”...

    Hi, I wanted to start liberty training one of my geldings (on the ground only, as he isn't broken in). I have been trying to research methods of doing so and so far have found little that is actually helpful despite reading many books, watching hundreds of videos and tutorials and asking people...

    Hi! I am considering doing an internship with Tommie Turvey this summer and I am looking to get some feedback from anyone who has had experience with him and about the internship and what it is like. Also I would like to know what it is like to work around Tommy and his wife? How to they treat...

    What are your thoughts and opinions on it and do you think it works for every horse?

    Okay, so is there anybody on here who does 'liberty'. By this I dont mean riding tackless every now and again, i mean those who believe things such as a horse always has a say, treating a horse as a friend ect. and work with their horses at liberty. I'm just really curious as I've always...
  7. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    I started liberty training with my mare last week, and I got a few requests to start a training thread about it. Well, until I get my hands on a real camera, this thread is going to lack visual. Not a lot I can do about that right now :-( Previously, I was doing jumping training with my horse...
  8. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    So, I recently bought a 2011 "off the track" STB who was never raced (too slow, apparently...seems pretty darn quick to me haha). I have spent a little bit of time trying to get him to trot in hand, and it is a struggle. But, when I run beside him in his paddock, he runs with me perfectly, step...

    hey guys, I'm really working on the liberty style of training with my horse and i was just wondering if you guys had any fun ideas and steps that really helped with your liberty progress, or if y'all had taught your horses any unique tricks that you wouldn't mind sharing.

    Riding my aunt's 10 y.o. QH gelding, Wiley. Wiley has been in a couple movies and commercials. He even played a role in James Franco's film 'Tar.' That's me riding him. You can see me almost come off a couple times :-o! http://https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ix5qHDttO6I
  11. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    I feel like my horse hates me. I don't really know why I feel this way but I do. I feel like he doesn't really want to be around me. It's driving me crazy. I just want to be able to have my horse love and care for me as much as I do for him.:oops: Bonding tips? I feel unloved and everyone on...
  12. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    Hello everyone~ I have recently decided that I wanted to try and do some Liberty training with my horse Skyy. I'm fascinated with the idea and it looks like something really fun and that could strengthen our bond even more. Other than youtube (I have super slow satellite internet Dx) What...

    What do you make of Hempflings weekly essays at his Facebook Page? I think they are very interesting but also very thought provoking and sometimes quite surprising. He is rather bold in his statements sometimes and I would be curious to hear what others make of it? I am a keen follower of his...

    Hey guys, I was just wondering... well, I've recently seen the work of Klaus Ferdinand Hempfling, and I was wondering how do I achieve similar at liberty work? Obviously, I know I can't just click my fingers and my horses do as I say! I know how to do join up and have good knowledge of body...
  15. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    Hi guys! I got my horse in December and he has been doing great! I've started doing some liberty work with him and he's doing magnificent! I have started free lunging him (no halter, no restrictions) I have an arena that does not have any panels around it, so if he wanted to he could just run...
