THE WATERHOLE RITUALS™ LIBERTY TRAINING® PROGRAM
This program, written and taught by Carolyn Resnick, is the ORIGINAL Waterhole Ritual Online Course!
The Waterhole Rituals Program is a method of Liberty Training developed by Carolyn Resnick through her years of observation of horses in the wild. It is a training method that begins at Liberty, rather than a method of training that ends at Liberty. It begins with the first breath; the moment that you and your horse are in the same state of awareness in harmony and unity with one another.
There are seven Waterhole Rituals and they are based on social bonding rituals that are natural to horses, and are a concrete way to practice Liberty Training with your horse!
By learning how these Rituals function in a natural herd, and by practicing this method, you will learn how to communicate with your horse in a language innate to the horse. One where he will naturally accept you as his leader. This knowledge will enhance every interaction you have with your horse; feeding, leading, grooming, riding, training and show!
The Carolyn Resnick Method of Horsemanship is the foundation for any and all equestrian pursuits.
