ABOUT THE CLINIC

We have SO many people asking ‘How do I start out at Liberty?’

We have put together a weekend format for just that!

Ben will be training two horses and humans on day 1, from the beginning of their Liberty journey – tools in the tool box and beyond..

Ben will work with two different horses, different personalities, ideally different breeds, to show how he approaches horses as individuals, whilst working through his scale of training.

On the second day, Ben will work with two different horses, that have ‘Tools in The Tool Box’ established and are ready to move onto the next steps in their Liberty Foundation.

Ben will be working with your horses, training the foundation steps and then coaching you, with your horse.

This clinic will be filmed and go into Ben’s Education area on Horsemanship Hub so please don’t apply if you are camera shy!

The clinic cost is £400 for ‘riders’.

If you would like to bring your horse, please could you Whatsapp Larisa 07958527693 a short video with an intro about yourself and your horses, including a video of you with your horse, we are not looking for you to impress or wow, just to get a feel or your horses personality and experience.

Spectators is £55 per day or £90 for two days

Please note this clinic has limited spectator places available – please book soon to avoid disappointment.
