on 20 – 23 July 2023 and 
Evening Talk at 7pm on Wednesday 19 July at Tilefield Equestrian (Brockenhurst, New Forest, Hants, UK) Click here for Directions 
During this evening talk and 4 day clinic Elsa will take you on a personal journey to help you to build a deeper bond with your horse.
Elsa became well known for a film she made about the training of a wild mustang, Myrnah.  She wanted to see if it was possible to ride a wild horse without using any tools or force during the training process. The film is called Taming Wild.

“What if horses were given a choice? Would they let us ride them? Without force or tools to control, and without bribes to lure them?”

During her year of experimental training with Myrnah, Elsa says that she learned more about horses and about herself than in all her 25 years of prior equine experience.
The film “Taming Wild” was followed by a second film “Taming Wild – Pura Vida”.  These films and Elsa’s subsequent work has led to her teaching clinics around the world and to a specialized program called Freedom Based Training® to help pass on what she learnt to students.

Yasmin Stuart - Balance Through Movement MethodTM

Balance Through Movement MethodTM – Nerve Release Clinic with Yasmin Stuart on Sunday 10 Sept and Monday 11 Sept from 9am to 5pm  
at Tilefield Equestrian (Brockenhurst, New Forest, Hants, UK) Click here for Directions 

Balance Through Movement Method ™ is Celeste Lazaris’s signature performance development training system designed to help the horse achieve optimum balance and strength through the specific development of the body and more importantly, the mind. The primary focus is toning the nervous system, developing the body through supporting spinal integrity and subsequently, protecting the body from nerve compressions. The system is rapidly gaining worldwide recognition as it can be very successful in reprogramming of the body’s compensatory patterns through proprioceptive work and vagal nerve exercises.

Horses attending this clinic will be offered a nerve release session with Yasmin of approximately 2 hours. The content of the session will be determined by the needs of each horse but Yasmin is likely to outline Celeste Lazaris’s training system, including the three central pillars which underly the work: Relationship to Connection, Centre of Balance and Spinal Integrity. During the session Yasmin may discuss or demonstrate; 
• In hand exercises 
• Emotional regulation 
• Proper weight distribution 
• Truths about the Thoracic Sling 
• Nerve Compression 
• How to correctly align the spine 
• How to activate some muscle to isolate and activate others 
• How to increase the range of motion in all four cardinal directions 
• How to teach your horse true self carriage through balance and correct development 
Yasmin Stuart is an Equine Physiotherapist and Lazaris Nerve Release Practitioner based in the UK. She is particularly passionate about the relationship between manual therapy and movement therapy to help rehabilitate from compensatory injuries such as kissing spines and sacroiliac disease, which is where Nerve Release blends beautifully into her practice.
The welfare of the horse is paramount to Yasmin’s practice and she strongly believes that compassionate application of evidence based techniques is the key to a happy, healthy horse. This includes teaching movement therapies with a solid underpinning of equitation science, and manual therapies founded upon a firm understanding of equine anatomy and research around the efficacy of their application.
