The Whole Horse Podcast | Episode 7 | Featuring Liberty Coach Heather Nelson

What a great Whole Horse episode! Heather is a wealth of information and hilarious to boot – we dove into all the ways that not riding our horses can be awesome, how we can cultivate balance and health in our horses on the ground, all the fun and creative ways we can connect with our horses out of the saddle, and how we can clear our “not riding” shame for good.

Heather Nelson is a liberty training specialist, known for starting from the beginning without the lines and inspiring horses through connection. She combines her background in ground work, classical dressage, intuitive training and liberty to help horse lovers like you tap into your own innate ability to earn a big YES from your horse so you can coach your horse to develop to their highest potential in self expression and balance. Heather is sought after for her engaging workshops and demonstrations where she teaches people to access leadership and respect through creative play, which is just as out of the box as it sounds.
