Clinic Host: Olympia Granger 206.498.6939 olympiagranger@hotmail.com

About Michael: As an instructor, I encourage both people and horses toward mutual understanding.My approach is inspired by the work, methods and ideology of the late horsemen Tom and Bill Dorrance, and Ray Hunt. I ride regularly with Buck Brannamanand consider myself blessed to be able to draw on his knowledge and years of experience. Pursuing this tradition of horsemanship should result in a horse that is easy to ride and light to your aids, being mentally engaged and enthusiastic, as well as a rider that looks like they belong on a horse and enjoy being there.

Sylvia Zerbini Liberty Clinic @ NWNHC Natural Horsemanship Center
May 11 @ 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm

NWNHC is proud to bring back world-renown horsewoman and liberty trainer, Sylvia Zerbini. This is a rare opportunity to learn from one of the finest liberty trainers in the world!

S
Sylvia has toured for many years with Cavalia-Odysseo and continues to share her artistry and liberty techniques in intimate clinics and through her Grande Liberté Spectacular in Ocala, Florida

Sylvia’s “Beyond the Stick” Liberté Clinic will teach you to speak the language your horse understands: energy; body postures, eye contact and voice cues. Once you begin to interact with your horse employing its own communication style, the response it gives you will transform your relationship. The two of you will connect in a way that you never before imagined possible.

Open to eight students. Unlimited auditors.
