Horseback rider, Madison Shambaugh, decided to go a week without any ropes on her horse. Her method is called the “Liberty Start,” which Madison shared about on facebook. Madison believes that training a horse without restraints is a good way to allow the horse to accept humans as they are, and vice versa. This Mustang was not easy to train, but accepted Madison on her own free will.

Key Takeaways:

  • The “Liberty Start” method is a way of training horses free of halters or reins.
  • Refraining from physical restraints allows horses to accept human on more trusting terms.
  • Believe in the horses and they will surprise you.

“My conclusions are this: Refraining from physical restraints and rather, allowing the horse to accept humans in a way that honors their bodies and free will is incredibly effective at making this transition.”
