Back in June, Free riding trainer and equine behavourist, Emma Massingale spent 4 weeks on an uninhabited Irish island off the coast of the Connemara National Park with four ponies from her Liberty team and two new unhandled Connemaras. #theislandproject

Her challenge was to be able to work with, and ultimately start/back the two unhandled Connemaras completely at liberty (without the use of any tack/enclosures or help). Emma acknowledged that this would be a huge undertaking - to understand how horses feel and think, and in turn create a relationship in just 4 weeks, to ultimately be able to ride these horses completely free.

Emma has this quote pinned to her wall -

"Imagine with all your mind, believe with all your heart, achieve with all your might!"

Grab a cuppa! Sit back and enjoy! Watch Emma's truly inspiring video - a taster to the full documentary which will be out later this year :)
