Luke Gingerich
specializes in teaching Performance Liberty Horsemanship, combining relationship-based training with high-level performance.  His mission is to inspire and educate horsemen and women to better connect with and understand their horses, while both improving their relationship and achieving results.



Includes a freestyle performance, general overview of Luke's program, and Q & A. Demos can be combined with clinics.

Intensive Clinics

If you are looking to not only improve your relationship with your horse, but to gain a thorough understanding of Luke's program, and how to apply these tools and principles to any horse you work with in the future, these clinics are for you! 

Each intensive clinic is open to a maximum of six participants, so they have a very personalized format, with a lot of individualized attention for each student and horse.
This is a great option for those traveling greater distances,

to get the most out of your time here.


During this intensive course, Luke will teach for approximately six or seven hours each day,

five days a week; two approximately three hour sessions each day, with a lunch break

in between the morning and afternoon sessions.

 Each day, the clinic will begin at 9:00 a.m. (unless otherwise noted) and typically

end around 5:00 p.m. although this may vary as Luke allows time to adjust to

each individual and what they need during sessions.

Luke often shares a demo at the beginning of the day, followed by participant sessions.

Each person and horse participate in a session in the morning, and again

in the afternoon after an approximately one-hour lunch break. 

Luke's work focuses on combining relationship-based training with an emphasis on

healthy biomechanics and high-level performance.

Luke covers a wide range of topics, which may include, but are not limited to:


Building connection, focus, relaxation, and softness


Increasing energetic awareness and understanding of body language


Fundamental body control at liberty


Incorporating clicker training / positive reinforcement


Liberty circles and advanced liberty maneuvers such as the bow, lay down, sit up, Spanish walk, rear, liberty spin, cutting game, and more.


Luke's approach for teaching advanced Performance Liberty principles: finding healthy, balanced movement, relaxation under pressure, collection at liberty, lateral work, lead changes, etc.


Transferring Performance Liberty principles to ridden work (general horsemanship, dressage, reining, and bridleless riding).

In addition to learning from group clinic sessions with participants, students can also watch and learn from Luke's training sessions with his personal horses here at home, both during and after clinic hours.





One hour private and semi-private (two participants) in-person lessons and virtual lessons using Zoom or live video call (Facebook Messenger)

Luke's students say it best...

"I don't think words can explain how truly incredible this past week was. For the first time EVER,

I feel like I found a trainer that cares about his horses wellbeing, both physically

and mentally more than the "fame". 

There were absolutely no "short cuts", what many don't know is I've really been lost lately. I LOVE liberty work, but I really don't agree with the way the discipline is headed. Everybody is out for a  quick fix that comes at the horse's expense. But not with Luke; he truly listens to everything

the horse is saying and sets them up for success.

Luke gave me so much information the past week, and not for a second did he withhold any steps or important parts. For the things I wasn't quite ready to work on, but was curious, he pulled out one of his horses and showed me EVERY STEP and was very realistic training sessions. 


The connection he and his horses have is undeniable! And it was all done kindly. His horses show emotions, playfulness, and truly choose to be with him. 


Rumor and I had an incredible week, we went back to the basics and refined all of our buttons.

By the end of the week, I had a totally different horse, and I can't wait to see where this

journey takes  us, now that we have a trainer and mentor to take us to that next level. 

If you've been looking for a fun week-long clinic, I highly recommend Luke Gingerich!

I know I'll be going back!"
