I recently had the absolute pleasure of watching a performance by Panadero, a P.R.E. Stallion, and his trainer Margit Deerman (who he adores) Although this remarkable team also performs (and wins ribbons) in many riding disciplines including western and dressage, their work at liberty is what represents the foundation of their relationship.
Watching them work together brought back wonderful memories of the joyful times Romeo and I had when we were together at liberty. The bond of telepathy, emotional exchange and utter trust that can be developed by working at liberty with horses is profound. Requiring skill, practice and a willingness to become truly one with the horse, it is a life-changing experience.
