Ideas for Joyful Learning
by Jutta Weimers
The films Playing with Horses accompany Jutta Wiemers’ book From Leading to Liberty and are meant to inspire fun with horses in a way to achieve perfect partnership. All the proposed games are beneficial to the horse: they will keep his body healthy, while stimulating his mind. The training is performed entirely without pressure, following the laws of shaping and using positive reinforcement.
Part 1: After an introduction into the basics of horse language, including establishing authority, Jutta Wiemers shows how to motivate your horse playfully. Part 2: Establish your leadership by taking fear out of a flight animal’s life. Mobilize your horse’s body with healthy gymnastics; help him to balance and coordinate his feet so he becomes a safe partner. Change his soul by teaching him circus exercises with purely voluntary methods. Part 3: Make your playing more challenging by interesting lunging games, work on the circle at liberty, send and call games, and pre-exercises for collection. Prepare for advanced riding fun!

Editor’s Note: With an extensive background in vaulting and a heart for horses, Jutta Wiemers has created a useful, fun, and inspiring program that can benefit any horse and rider. The perfect solution to spice up boring arena work!
