Hello! My name is Elsa Sinclair, and I recently made a movie called "Taming Wild" where I took a Mustang fresh out of the wild and spent a year training her in an entirely new way. This led to the epiphany that I now call Freedom Based Training®. It takes everything we know about horse training and develops it beyond what people currently understand about training horses. The movie was intended to be small and inspirational, simply the story of a girl and a horse on an experimental journey of building relationship in a new way. As things do sometimes, this story took off in a way that was beautiful and unexpected, and now there is a large following of people all around the world who want to know more about how to do this with horses.
In January of 2018 we are embarking on a second movie, "Taming Wild - Pura Vida", again exploring the ideas behind Freedom Based Training® and implementing and delving even deeper with new ways of building relationships between horses and humans. This time I will be teaming up with Andrea Wady of Pura Vida Equus, who ran Discovery Horse Tours in Costa Rica for the last thirteen years and together we are going to rescue two horses and train them as we cross the country of Costa Rica from the West Coast to the East Coast. I see it as their walk towards a second chance at a good life.
We will be rescuing these horses either from the kill pen, or from a situation where it seems likely that the kill pen is their destination if we do not step in. The goal in this movie is to take everything we know about training horses, rebuilding trust, and developing relationship skills and put it into action with these horses in motion. The trek across this spectacular country is the perfect backdrop for the development of both horses and humans together and the resulting movie will be a source of understanding and inspiration for people around the world as they work to develop their own relationships with people, animals and nature. This epic journey of building relationships between horses and humans as we navigate across Costa Rica should be the the adventure of a lifetime, and we have a brilliant film crew ready to document the whole endeavor.
We would like to ask you for your support as we gather together the things we need to make the adventure a success. Would you be willing to help us make this a reality? We would like you to be part of our community!
