I invited 5-Star Master Parelli Professional, Liberty expert, and friend David Lichman to the pod to talk about what he calls: Liberty as a lifestyle. This episode will give you a lot to think about when it comes to your daily life in partnership with your horses and will tempt you to think about who you need to be for your horse to want to be with you.

About the Guest:

David Lichman is a 5-Star Master Parelli Professional with a specialty in Liberty Horses. He has performed across the continent with his three-horse act, which includes bridle-less riding and riding to music. He is the creator of Liberty Outside the Round Pen, a Parelli Mastery Series release, available for streaming and on DVD, in which David gives step-by-step instructions on building a connection that resists distractions, enabling students to play at Liberty with exuberance in large open areas.

David teaches all over the world, helping students find a better relationship with their horses on the ground and riding.

His training philosophy can be summed up in this simple quote:

“I don’t see them as horses, I see them as friends. They have names, desires and needs – as do I. Friends help fulfill each other’s needs and desires.”
