INSTRUCTOR: NANCY ZINTSMASTER
Join Carolyn Resnick, Nancy Zintsmaster and Neda DeMayo at Return to Freedom's American Wild Horse Sanctuary and learn to connect with horses at Liberty in nature. This will be an unforgettable experience of a lifetime!
Return to Freedom’s mission is to preserve the freedom, diversity, and habitat of America’s wild horses and burros through the sanctuary, education, advocacy, and conservation, while enriching the human spirit through direct experience with the natural world.
For twenty years, Neda DeMayo, founder of Return to Freedom, a national non-profit wild horse conservation organization, has been dedicated to modeling and advocating viable humane solutions to protect wild horses and burros on the range as an alternative to the costly and traumatic capture and warehousing of wild horses. RTF operates a sanctuary providing a refuge for 500 wild horses and 43 burros with a focus to maintain natural family bands and bonded social groups.
This amazing experience will take you to Return to Freedom's Wild Horse Sanctuary where you will learn directly from free-ranging wild horses about relationships and communication between the horses in the herd and how to translate this "feel" into developing a connection with horses at Liberty through The Carolyn Resnick Method of Horsemanship, The Waterhole Rituals. You will enjoy this experience with wild horses that have been rescued by Return to Freedom and reside at the Sanctuary, including some horses that are looking for adoptive homes!
The Carolyn Resnick Method of training horses at Liberty, The Waterhole Rituals, will teach you how to communicate with horses in a language they understand. This method was developed by Carolyn Resnick over 40 years ago from her observation of horses in the wild and how they communicate with each other in harmony and unity. She adapted this communication into a method that would help humans communicate with horses by developing a deep bond, trust, respect, and willingness; with no force and no pressure; allowing the horse to have a voice!
