West Country Liberty Adventure Clinics!
There is only one thing better than having incredible adventures with my animals and that is sharing it with likeminded people from around the world. Over the last seven years we have had the most fantastic groups of people join us, sharing our training, love for the outdoors, my philosophy for approaching horses and life in general!
Come and see our traditional Devon farmhouse surrounded by fields of my Liberty Ponies (and a few other animals!). You will get to work alongside me for an amazing week long adventure, working at Liberty for daily lessons with my teams of horses, ponies, mules and donkey! We share how creating a lifestyle over a technique is a really sustainable way of having the most incredible relationship with your horse. Combining Animals and nature is for me the very best way to live and work, by understanding the fun that can be had while training in all sorts of different environments gives my clients the opportunity to explore working with our equine friends in the most natural way.
There is an old nomadic saying I once heard “To understand the wolf you must first put on the skin of the wolf and see the world through his eyes” after more than 25 years developing my skills as a trainer and teacher I believe I have found the most beneficial way for my clients to feel this, in a truly unforgettable fun way!
During our week together we shall spend our days working with the animals including individual Liberty sessions, clients can also get to try their hand at working with multiple horses, we shall also cover trick training skills and training techniques. (All in an ethical way!). Some days I shall be working with my team, I will show and share with you how I introduce new horses and moves at Liberty. You can experience first-hand the highs and lows of working with horses in freedom, we shall also be working with the horses out in different environments such as the moors, beaches and woodlands.
Of course we all need a little break and so through out the week we shall also be heading off with out the horses for some thought provoking, fun filled activities that I believe help us become a great partner for our horses, activities such as Wild Foraging, Kayaking, Coasteering, Wake Boarding, SUP boarding, Horse Boarding, snorkelling (activities are chosen to fit in with the weather and sea conditions)Please don’t feel that these types of activities aren’t for you as I promise they make perfect sense as part of my training philosophy. All activities are do able at any level.
Accommodation - Luxury lakeside cabins at Mill Farm, just down the hill from us. Self contained units for two people beside the lake to give you a chance to relax and unwind, overlooking the peaceful and tranquil lake.

Here is what previous adventurers had to say about their Liberty adventure.....
"Hands down THE best week of my life, I've learnt so much, experienced things I never thought possible, met some truly great people can I say - what a pleasure to spend time with you all. This has been a massively positive experience and I have learnt lots (including how to hold a sausage dog)!" - Nicky
"I feel freed up to be so much more expressive with Elle (my horse) and the others and to work in a much more gentle way. I have been heading that way and learning from you has helped me to see how the relationships can be and how much communication is possible. The ponies were fabulous and the challenges definitely something else! Before I came I was feeling that I was getting a bit old and stiff and weak, in my worse moments even feared I had MND too. Doing what we did has blown those thoughts, literally, out of the water! I now know I still have strength, energy and courage....I can't thank you enough for releasing that in me again. Thank you so much for sharing all that you did and giving me so much more to play with. I'll let you know how we get on!"- Karen
"What a truly inspiring week you, your team, the ponies gave me. I learnt so much. The adventure week allows you to teach the whole spectrum, it is a far more effective way of teaching than those hourly fixed sessions at booked venues. But it was still very brave of you and the ponies to take us on". - Shuna
