Susan and I meet at Ruella’s Ranch in Oklahoma in the spring of 2013. We held a liberty training clinic together with Ruella’s amazing herd – a super mix of minis, a donkey, a paint and a pony. I have held many clinics for hundreds of students in Liberty Training in Norway, Denmark, USA, Colombia, Holland and the Caribbean, but have to admit no clinic was so fun as the one with Susan and Ruella at Ruella’s Ranch.
Sahaja 2015 will be my first clinic adding riding, not just sitting on the horse, but real riding. To make this clinic an unforgettable experience I wanted to team up with another liberty trainer with riding experience. So it came that Susan and I decided to team up and co-teach the clinic.
More about Susan;
Susan Smith is an Advanced Certified Practitioner of Ortho-Bionomy, enrolled in Instructor Training.
Susan began her interest in equine bodywork many years ago, when she became a student of the Reflex Balancing work of reiner and trainer Art Grunig of Santa Rosa, Calif. She is also a trainer of holistic liberty foundation work, which employs herd behavior techniques to establish healthy working connections with horses. This also includes working with human energy, a vital component in the success of a horse-human relationship. This work integrates very well with Ortho-Bionomy.
Her bodywork with people includes helping them maintain their health and fitness through Ortho-Bionomy. She also works with trauma, chronic and acute pain, repetitive stress, illness and other challenges that are brought on by work, daily life and sports injuries.
Susan was a participant in a non-profit program, OBIS, bringing Ortho-Bionomy to children in a city public school.
An avid endurance rider with 2,650 competition miles, Susan maintains a vital interest in basic horsemanship.
Susan has also been a writer and editor for 30 years with 35 books published for children and teens. Her articles on various topics appear in equine publications such as Western Horseman, Trail Blazer, and The Horseman’s Voice.
“Susan has an amazing capacity to assess my horse’s body health in both the micro and the macro senses…and observes the whole animal, what his job is being worked. A truly gifted bodyworker.” – Terry F.
