About Pregnant Mare Rescue

Every year thousands of healthy horses, including pregnant mares and their foals, are sent to slaughterhouses. The goal of Pregnant Mare Rescue is to save as many pregnant mares as they can from abuse, neglect and a trip to the slaughterhouses. Their intent is to gentle the mares, gentle the foals and prepare them for new loving homes. They simply cannot do this important lifesaving work without you! Each and every dollar donated goes towards rescuing and caring for the horses. We at Carolyn Resnick Method of Horsemanship support this mission and hope that you will join Carolyn Resnick, Nancy Zintsmaster and the team at Pregnant Mare Rescue for an amazing journey through the Waterhole Rituals, a method of training horses at Liberty!

A Journey Through The Waterhole Rituals Clinic

The Carolyn Resnick method of training horses at Liberty, The Waterhole Rituals, will teach you how to communicate with horses in a language they understand. This method was developed by Carolyn Resnick over 40 years ago from her observation of horses in the wild and how they communicate with each other in harmony and unity.  She adapted this communication into a method that would help humans communicate with horses by developing a deep bond, trust, respect, and willingness; with no force and no pressure; allowing the horse to have a voice!
