This week Mosie talks with Sophie Dam, aka Sophie’s Horse Tales, about their journeys looking beyond Liberty Horsemanship and “training”. The two talk about Sophie’s experience moving her herd to open land where her horses have the opportunity to live naturally and even a bit wild. Sophie talks about how her relationship with her horses and horsemanship in general transformed when her horses started living as nature intended. This episode explores the deep, spiritual nature of the horse/human relationship, and what it means to meet your horse from a place of “enough”.
In this episode, Mosie talks with Lindze Braff about intuition. The two talk about trusting intuition when it comes to finding an equine partner and Lindze shares how she found and united with her 2 horses. Following your intuition when it comes to horses and horse training is vital and a cornerstone in both Lindze’s and Mosie’s horsemanship.
They also explore the importance of taking care of yourself, some of the pressures we put on ourselves as horse lovers & women, and the benefits of getting in touch with our own needs.
Mosie talks with Nina Polo about picking up Nina’s horse Luna and the lesson they learned about speaking up when a horse is in need. They also talk about the courage and compassion it takes to face our horsemanship mistakes & the importance of being kind to ourselves. The two ask some big questions about freedom and the nature of the horse/human relationship.
This week on the “In the Spirit of Horse”, Mosie speaks with Liberty Trainer Katie Berman about the vulnerability and courage it takes to love a horse with your whole heart even in the face of uncertainty, fear, and loss.

What would you do today if you had no fear? If you had nothing to prove to others? No need to impress or get permission to live the way you dream? This week, Mosie talks to Emelie Boss – a wild woman with an empowered spirit who courageously takes her life and her fear into her own hands.
Emelie Boss ventures into the true wild every year to camp on her own in a foreign country. In this episode, the talks about her experience uniting with the wild, the lessons mother earth has taught her, and the importance of trying new things, even when they scare us.
Mosie and Emelie talk about facing fears and how doing so has liberated Emelie to live a life of true freedom.
What would you do if you didn’t need to be perfect?

What is beauty? When a horse is broken, something is lost. When her vibrant spirit is dimmed, when we attempted to possess or control her fire, many times the spirit we fell in love with, the beauty we are in awe of, leaves. What happens when we switch from a mindset of “owning” what is beautiful to *appreciating the beauty we see?
Beauty standards and shame can add to our own “breaking” as humans. In this podcast, Mosie Trewhitt talks with photographer, artist, and director Daryl Getman about the meaning of beauty, the spirit of the horse, and finding the things inside that make us all truly beautiful.

*IMPORTANT: This episode has very rough audio – if you have sensitive ears, beware! You may want to download a different episode.
For those who can handle a bit of rough and tough (perhaps you could say, wild?) audio, then stick around to hear some wild horse stories!
But really, if the sound is too annoying, just skip this week. No one’s feelings will be hurt. 😉
But I will feel sad if you hurt your ears.
In this episode, Mosie Trewhitt, Nina Polo, and Humble Roger talk about their experience camping with wild horses, what they have learned from the wild herds, and how it has changed the way they view the wild within.
In this episode of in the spirit of horse, Mosie Trewhitt talks with Frida of A Little Rescue on what is it like training for a rescue, what challenges she faces, and how she stays true to what she believes while finding homes for the horses she rescues.

In this episode of In the Spirit of Horse, Mosie talks about the feelings of guilt that arise around horses when she feels like she “isn’t doing enough”.
Pressure and guilt can send us into a downward spiral that can paralyze us, keeping us from doing even the things we truly love. She explains how guilt sometimes keeps her from enjoying time with the horses she loves.
Mosie explores the conditional relationship we sometimes feel with ourselves in times where self-compassion runs low. A conditional relationship is one that requires us to chase our worthiness, rather than understanding that our worthiness is inherent. Truthfully we are worthy of love, just as we are, right now in this moment.
With a little self compassion, we can face the times we feel guilty or unworthy with love and understanding, not just for others, but also for ourselves.
This week on the show, Katie Berman and Mosie Trewhitt speak about mistakes, the illusion of perfection, and self forgiveness.
You know what’s interesting? I find this episode to be imperfect. There are quite a few mistakes and downfalls I could point out… things I want to go back and change but have no time to do so if I want to post this week. It’s a bit hard for me to post this feeling so far from “perfect”, but hey, maybe that’s actually incredibly fitting! I’m going to stand by it in vulnerability and courage.
Thank you all for listening and your support! I’ll see you next week we will have a brand new Episode!

In this Episode of “In the Spirit of Horse”, Mosie talks about her filly Elle, her birth, and the magical year they spent together. A Story of joy, loss, and most importantly, truly unconditional love.
This week, Mosie talks about authenticity and how it can help you build a deeper connection with your horse. She looks at authenticity as a key component to self acceptance, love, and belonging. Everyone desires a place in the “herd”. Once we see that we are worthy of love and acceptance exactly as we are, right now, no need for perfection, improvements, or change, we are able to receive the love we desire.
Horses don’t need us to preform, be something we are not, or change who we are for them – they just want to see us in our authenticity. So how do we get there?
This week, Mosie talks with Nina Polo of Animal Alchemy on the nature of process based thinking vs goal based thinking. How do we overcome the limiting beliefs of “perfection”? In Liberty Horsemanship, we are more concerned about “how” something was done than “what”. The process of learning, playing, and building a relationship is more important than “perfect” final product. Still it is easy to get swept up in “end goals”, especially when social media and self-based the expectation to be “perfect”. Focusing on the process really frees us to enjoy ourselves and grow with our horses in the moment and cultivate flowing creativity.

This week on the podcast, Mosie talks with Tara Davis of Unbridled Goddess. They talk about the thought process that goes into building a liberty barn and lifestyle for horses, how they are plan on fulfilling the horses’ inherent needs, and the emotions that come up when deciding the best way to care for our equine companions.
What fears hold us back from giving the horses we love the freedom and lifestyle they were born to experience? Often times we underestimate the capabilities of a horse, keeping their lives small and sheltered, limiting their potential to fully blossom. When we satisfy a horse’s basic needs for space, herd, and stimulation through thorough and sometimes alternative care, she is freed to experience the true joy of being a horse and develop authentic connections.
If a horse is deeply fulfilled, will she still want to spend time with us? If a horse is completely satisfied, will she still be interested in engaging? Mosie and Tara talk about the importance of fulfilling a horse’s needs, and how doing so opens us up to deeper, authentic relationships.

In this episode, Mosie talks with Katie Berman about the process of “un-breaking” a horse. What does it mean when a once very compliant, “broke” horse is given a voice and starts saying “no”? How can we move our relationship forward and get out of the “no phase”?
Mosie and Katie talk about the importance of respecting a horse’s decisions, taking away expectations, and honoring a horse’s “no”. Only if a horse is free to say “no” can we get a genuine “yes!”.
In this episode, Mosie explores fear and its relationship to horsemanship. She examines the nature of fear and shares 3 steps to help manage fear when it shows up in your relationships with horses.
It’s okay to feel fear.
Mosie discusses why it’s so important to acknowledge fear’s presence, learn from it, but not to let it lead. Through love and intuition, it’s possible to get out of the mindset of “reaction” and into one of “action”.
With Love, Not Fear
This week on the podcast, Mosie is joined by Nina Polo: practitioner, teacher, and forever student of yoga, meditation and mindfulness and the founder of Animal Alchemy. Animal Alchemy provides equine assisted mindfulness to groups and individuals.
In the Liberty Horsemanship community, we talk a lot about the pressures of traditional equestrianism on horses, but what about the pressures on upcoming equestrians? Our early experience in the horse world can shape how we approach horses as well as other horse lovers. Mosie and Nina discuss Nina’s first experience with equestrian culture, why she strayed away from that scene, and how she reunited with her love for horses once again, years later. They dive into the roots of fear and why if unacknowledged, it is more likely to shape our horsemanship from behind the scenes.

In this episode, Mosie is joined by Frida Riebel, horse trainer and horse manager for the horse rescue A Little Rescue. Frida gives us an inside look at horse auctions, the rescue process, and how horses get into the downward spiral that can ultimately lead to slaughter. The two discuss how to keep your horse safe and out of the hands of kill buyers as well as the amazing nature of rescued horses.

Many domestic horses suffer from chronic boredom. Boredom causes a countless number of serious problems related to a horse’s well being and happiness. In this episode, Mosie explains 3 different actions you can take to enrich your horse’s life and fulfill their innate need for mental stimulation. When a horse’s needs are fulfilled, deep connection and trusting relationships have the space they need to flourish.
In this podcast, we explore the incredible relationship between horse and human as well as the invaluable lessons horses have to teach us. Horse wisdom is vast and relevant to our everyday human lives. When given the chance, horses change us, helping us to live in harmony with the rhythm of the natural world.
Join Mosie Trewhitt of Liberty Horsemanship and all of the amazing guests as they dive into the nature of the horse/human connection and what it means to live in the spirit of horse.
