Liberty horse training is defined as training without tack or equipment and thus epitomises communication with your horse. Liberty training can be from the ground or mounted and you can train one horse or teams of horses.
Believe Liberty Horse Club is the first UK chapter of the International Liberty Horse Association. The ILHA was founded by renowned horseman and liberty trainer Dan James and his wife Elizabeth of Double Dan Horsemanship. The ILHA is the official governing body of the Liberty discipline and will hold local, national, international and online competitions.
I started training with Dan in March 2020 and entered my first online ILHA competition in August. The association really has something for everyone. You can read more here to see if it's for you.
Believe Liberty Horse Club is for everyone. You don't have to be established at liberty. You can start out on the headcollar and leadrope. We run virtual challenges within our Facebook group and if/ when you feel ready, you can compete in affiliated ILHA shows.
Our aim is provide support, encouragement and fun for Liberty enthusiasts in the North! We plan to hold clinics, club training sessions, competitions and socials. Join the Believe Liberty Horse Facebook group to keep up to date!
