FREEDOM EQUINE INTERNATIONAL
THE GLOBAL REVOLUTION TO RELATIONSHIP BASED EQUITATION
One of the most wonderful things in the world is seeing a horse that is lost, frustrated, confused, crushed in spirit, angry and full of fear relax, their dark eyes show a faint glimmer of hope again, for them to then come to you and put their head in your arms and trust you to help them... this is what our Freedom Equine horses come to us like. The reason WHY they are like this is the lack of understanding across the board of how to work with horses.
Yet after one day with us they recover hope that was lost, trust and know how to face life again. Relationship Based Equitation does this. It is true, a true and facade-less connecting with horses in true harmony with them, rather than bossing them around and playing mind games with them.
Every single one of the horses we train begin like this and when they leave to go to their new forever homes every one of them is a relaxed, hopeful and have regained their spirit that was crushed unwittingly by bad methodology.
Each one bringing tears to the eyes when we see their true nature emerge again, their little quirks and things that they enjoy and do and their wonderful very different personalities which were hidden under the mechanical facade they have been expected to wear 24/7.
The other thing we get to see all the time is people, who come to us, fearful, frustrated, confused, have lost all their confidence with horses, yet love them so much, who hold a dream deep inside still that they can connect with a horse and have an amazing bond with them.
Then seeing them realize their previous mistakes and what it takes to have this. Realizing how blind they have been and then finally getting it right, experiencing that true, very real connection. Seeing them realize they don't need all the baggage, just to build a true relationship with their horse, truly.
We get to walk with these people and help them, tell them to be strong every time 20 people tell them to do the opposite thing with their horse, to just dominate them, to whip them into submission instead.
We get to see many push through and experience the amazing magical true connection with horses and then do things they only ever dreamed of easily.
We get to help people and horses with their dreams, show them how to achieve them and support them. This is the goal.
