If you’d like to support the podcast and all the work that I do then you can! Just head on over to and sign up. From as little as a cup of coffee a month, you can help me keep this podcast going. There are many tiers that you can choose from and if everyone who listens gave only $5 per month, it would make a massive positive difference to me. There is a tier in there for a small business subscription just like the one Peter Papp took up from Peter and the Herd, this is the one where your business gets a mention each week on the podcast. Peter works with equine behaviour and trauma recovery. Equine communication. Human and horse relationship building. Peter has had communication with my mare Gypsy, who is the mare with me in the podcast picture and he was spot on about everything so I can highly recommend his work personally. Click here to connect with Peter and the Herd.I’d love to say a huge thank you to our new Patreon subscriber Angie Wentrup, thank you so much Angie for joining the patreon community to keep the podcast rolling along. I’d also like to thank Karen Laude for her one off Paypal contribution. If you would also like to do a one-off payment you are very welcome to, just get in contact via my website or social media and let you know how to go about it.In this episode I speak with Martin Contreras, Martin trains in liberty and works with horse owners to build a strong foundation for working with horses and really honing your intuitive skills to build the foundations and levels of communication needed to strengthen the bond with your horse. Martin is a great trainer in his own right and also keeps up his own training, he is currently working under Steph Vincent to develop his in-hand work.I was lucky enough to attend one of Martin’s clinics in Brisbane about 5 years ago with my mare Gypsy. He works in such a gentle and intuitive way with horses and it is a true partnership and 2-way communication.In this conversation we talk about many things, one of them being what the word liberty really means and I’m so glad we did as it is something that I feel has been a little misused in the horse world. To be at liberty a horse is not just free of tack. I will read you the dictionary definition of liberty so you have something to ponder while listening to Martin’s story. It means the quality or state of being free. The power to do as one pleases. Freedom from physical restraint. Freedom from arbitrary or despotic control, despot means a ruler with absolute power and authority. The positive enjoyment of various privileges. The power of choice.So while you ponder that, sit back and enjoy this conversation.To connect with Martin please click on the links belowFacebook clinics, in-person or online Lessons, contact Martin via social media or at
