The Whole Horse Podcast | Episode 29 | Starting Sailor, a feral pony, with Heather Nelson Liberty Coach

For the episode, liberty coach (and much more) Heather Nelson and I literally sat down on my couch and had a chat. And what a chat it was! I finally was able to hear, in it’s entirety, the story of Heather and Sailor, her feral pony. She shares, step by step, the process of heading to Pender Island to pick him up (he’d never ever been handled by a human), how he got his name, getting him ready to be gelded, and now, riding him down the trails. All using gentle and fun training and letting him make up his own mind. Very cool stuff! If every horse was started this way, horses would be a much much happier, healthier bunch.

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.
