Trainer for Liberal Groundwork with Horses
The horse's mediator, friend and ally
- Do you love horses and are ready for self-development?
- Would you like to bring more understanding into the world of horses and humans?
- Do you have a heart for problem horses?
- Do you have a difficult horse?
- Do you work already with horses and are tired of the old pressure and function track?
Make more of your love for horses!
Become an ally of the horse. Become a counterpart who respects his nature, understands his language and mediates between him and his caregiver when needed!
Liberal ground work with horses according to HALE® is understood as fundamental- and relationship-work with the horse. It is the key to a natural, clearly defined, partnership-based relationship on which everything else - such as riding - can be wonderfully built. HALE® is excellent for gentle, horse-friendly training of remounts, the advancement of trained horses, as well as for the correction of difficult and spoilt horses.
The training comprises 2 levels (basic and advanced) with a total of 23 training days. The two levels can be spread over 2 consecutive years.
For our participants from abroad we also offer this education program in block format. Please contact us for more information.
