 “I saw Sylvia Zerbini at Grande Liberté Farm just a few weeks ago. It was beautiful, fun, and really inspiring. I highly recommend it.” Linda Parelli

 

Clinic

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.

Get personal instruction with two half-hour sessions per day with your horse and six hours watching and sharing with other students. Because you will witness the lessons of the other students, you will realize a steep learning curve with your own horse.
