What’s the format of the program?
When you join, you will get a grateful kiss from your horse (who doesn’t love a horse smooch?!) plus instant access to all the videos, modules & bonuses in Dancing at Liberty™ & access to the Facebook community.
Do I need to have done liberty already with my horse?
Elaine, are these liberty lessons videos?
Is Dancing at Liberty™ suitable for new horses or first time horse owners?
110% yes! The first step for any horse-human partnership, is to work together and build a bond, starting with communication & connection. It is magical to see how with liberty work, how much trust & connection develops and how you can build an awe-inspiring partnership with your horse! So it’s perfect if you are the proud owner of a new horse, or if your horse is the proud owner of a first time human!
It's winter where I live and it's freezing. Can I start this course now or should I wait?
We get snow here in Ireland in the winter, so I totally understand! For me, I like to use the bad weather in the winter to concentrate more on groundwork & building connection
with my horses. That way I can keep working with my horses, even during the winter.
And I don't feel bad we've done nothing in months due to hard ground or snow. All of these lessons are designed to be short. Think 10-15 minute sessions.
And all of these you can do on the ground in walk. And they can really help your horse. For me, these exercises are a way to stay connected to my horse over the winter. Then once the spring arrives, we can get back to a lot more riding & fun activities in the fine weather. You also get 4 years access to this program, so once you purchase it you can work through it as slowly or quickly as suits you.
No you don't :) All you need is a paddock & a fence line.
What age does my horse need to be?
This course is only suitable for horses over 3 years of age. At Listening to the Horse, we allow our young horses to grow up slowly, as their bodies are not fully mature until at least 5.5 years of age - and older than that too.
How long does each liberty session with my horse need to be?
We believe in quality, not quantity. And luckily, so do our horses! So if you can spend 1 or 2 fifteen minute groundwork sessions with your horse each week - that sounds perfect. Plus with our thoughtfully designed ‘small chunk’ liberty lessons, you’ll always be able to have fun with your horse!
My horse sometimes demonstrates behaviour that is a major safety concern - such as rearing, biting, bucking, bolting, etc. It this course suitable for me?
No, this is not the course for you.. This course does not address or fix major behavioural problems. We would advise you to contact your vet as a lot of these types of issues begin with pain the horse has.
I bought these exercises, how do I log in & watch them?
When you purchase you will get an email with all your login details. If it hasn't arrived please check your spam & promotions folder as sometimes your email gets hidden in there (ugh, technology I know!). If it's not there, please email our team and we'll be happy to get you all set up :) Email us: firstname.lastname@example.org
Is this course suitable if I only do groundwork with my horse?
Yes! This is a 100% groundwork only course. So it's perfect for all horses over the age of 3, non-ridden equines, and retired horses who want to have fun!
Is this for English or Western riders?
These exercises are for both English & Western riders. It doesn't matter the style of your saddle or what type hat you wear. All that matters is that you love spending time with your horse & want to create an inspiring partnership together.
Do I need any special type of equipment?
There are one or two exercises that you will need a rope & halter to begin with, before we move to liberty. If you had some obstacles around (any type!) that would be useful too.
Are these exercises suited for both horses & ponies?
Yes! The all types of horses & ponies love liberty as they get to express themselves & have fun while spending time with you!
If I purchase now, can I watch the exercises later when I have more time?
Absolutely! I know it’s a crazy time in the world right now, so that’s why you get unlimited 24/7 access to all the course modules and bonuses, on all your smartphones, laptops & ipads, for 4 years from the date of purchase or the life-time of this course, whichever is greater.
What technology do you need?
This program is 100% online! You will need a computer or smartphone/tablet connected to the internet.
Does this program including 1-1 coaching support?
This program is a self-study program. This program does not include coaching support. You can learn more about our other programs at www.greyponyfilms.com
What currency are the prices in?
All our prices are in USD dollars. I know that takes a bit of head scratching
if you live in Europe or Australia, but I’ve found this handy website
that makes it easy to convert the numbers into your local currency :)
Hey Elaine, is this a one time charge?
Yes! This is a one-time payment only. There is no ongoing subscription. So you don't need to worry. All you need to do is share the great news with your horse & look forward to having lots of fun together :)
If you live in Europe, then the grey suits in Brussels have said that all online businesses have to charge Europeans VAT. I’m sorry about that. Trust me, horses are a lot simpler to figure out, than keeping up with all this VAT stuff!
Do you have a refund policy?
What if I’m still not sure?
