Nancy Zintsmaster, a certified Instructor and co-owner of the Carolyn Resnick Method, offers a great opportunity for you to learn how to relate to your horse in an entirely new way!

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!
