Improve your horsemanship skills
Liberty work is a great way to improve your horsemanship skills and deepen the relationship between you and your horse. In liberty work, you interact with your horse in a more natural way, without the use of reins, halters, leadropes or other aids. This type of interaction can help you better understand your horse's natural body language and communication.
Getting started with liberty work can be as simple as turning your horse out in an enclosed area, such as a round pen or small paddock. Once your horse is comfortable in the enclosed area, you can begin to approach him and interact with him without the use of any aids. Remember to move slowly and calmly around your horse, and be sure to respect their personal space. If at any time your horse becomes uncomfortable or stressed, you can back off and give him some time to adjust.
