Suzanne Liscouski, owner and trainer, grew up in the horse world the traditional way, through pony club as a child, competing in local, state and regional events, and through Sweet Briar College’s equestrian Hunter-Jumper program. Since 1999 when she started her first colt with Ray Hunt, her methods and riding philosophy have been honed to give the horse a "better deal" as Ray taught. What does that mean? It means doing more with less, making your horse a willing partner, and approaching training in a way that is meaningful to the horse and to the rider. You don’t have to be a cowboy to adapt these foundational methods to your discipline. Rather, this holistic approach provides a solid foundation to develop confidence, safety, and a true connection with your horse. The horsemanship is a foundation link to your discipline and your relationship with your horse. Suzanne continued to do clinics with Ray Hunt (who mentored Buck Brannaman) and was fortunate to have the honor of being Ray’s European trip planner and translator in 2002. In 2004 she began riding with other known clinicians in the training world, including the (then) little known Buck Brannaman who would later become known as the man in the excellent documentary “Buck.” Suzanne continues to ride with Buck when he comes to the East, and other like minded trainers (that Ray mentored before passing on) such as Joe Wolter and Bryan Neubert to continue her learning and ability to pass the experience on to her students. Most recently, Suzanne has become a proponent of similar methods used by Pat Puckett and Patrick King (also a Ray Hunt protégé) who offer clinics at her home, Briar Creek Farm. Quite simply, Suzanne believes it’s a lifetime journey to constantly improve your horsemanship and your relationship with your horse. Suzanne is featured in a short documentary about retraining ex-racehorses, which was featured at the Napa Valley film festival and the NY Equus film Festival. https://vimeo.com/100371098. Suzanne has a BA from Sweet Briar College, a Master of Arts degree, and was a Presidential Management Fellow prior to serving in Federal Government for 15 years. Now a consultant inside the horse world, she can help you think differently and excel with your horse.

We are trying a new product on some of the barefoot horses here this week, Hoof Armor. It is a coating (like an epoxy) that owners can put on themselves that claims to protect soles and bottom of hooves. Stay tuned for updates!

Wrapped up a GREAT biomechanics weekend with Jillian Kreinbring! Her knowledge of equine movement and proper body usage for performance and soundness is amazing.

Patrick King Horsemanship

Using a garrocha pole isn't about the pole, it's about honing your horsemanship. That pole is a teacher for making your circles even, and ensures you are steering with your seat and legs vice hands. Great fun too! Especially at the canter!

Can you change a Goose's mind?

Can you change a goose's mind? Practice your sidepassing and shoulder separation work to get them to think about moving in another direction. Will they look left and look right based on your pressure without flying off?
