From the Horse's Point of View —
Friday, August 3rd from 6 pm - 8:30 pm (Colorado Horse Rescue - Longmont, CO)
Do you dream of enjoying ultimate partnership with your horse? The kind of relationship where you can go anywhere and do anything?
If so, please join us for an enlightening evening of photos, videos and discussion. You will learn how horses think, feel and what they instinctively crave. We will discuss understanding the mind and nature of the horse, how horses communicate, how to relate to your horse in their language, and empathetic problem solving from the horse's point of view. $10
"What Trailer?" Trailer Loading Clinic —
Saturday, August 4th from 9 am - 5 pm (Colorado Horse Rescue - Longmont, CO)
The recent onslaught of Colorado wildfires has been a hard, but valuable reminder of the importance of having your horse properly prepared to trailer load both consistently and predictably. Don't wait until it could be too late to instill confidence and obedience in your horse with the trailer.
Trailer loading often has a reputation of being troublesome or challenging, but it certainly does not have to be! In this demonstration you will develop the knowledge and skills to prepare your horse for a safe and smooth loading experience and will learn how to assist your horse in becoming a willing and confident partner with the trailer. This clinic is perfect for horses that are difficult to load or those that have had traumatic experiences with trailers, as well as for anyone looking to enhance the relationship with their horse. Attending the "From the Horse's Point of View" lecture the evening before is highly recommended. Cost: $25 to audit; $75 for your horse to participate.
Attend both the lecture and clinic for $30!

- Summer Fun -
It has been a delightful summer of riding here in Nebraska. Although, we too have been enveloped by this summers heatwave, temperatures always seem more tolerable atop a terrific horse.
The highlight of our summer has been riding with Becky Parker of RP Dressage, dressage instructor extraordinaire! Becky's wealth of knowledge, attention to detail and approachable instruction have made our continuing study of western dressage a real pleasure. My two geldings, Chinook and Frisco, exceled at last months Summer Solstice Dressage Show, bringing home blue ribbons and scores well worth being proud of. My sincere thanks to Becky for her support and guidance and as well to Sheila and Peg, for all their efforts in organizing an exceptional show!
Amidst our preparation for the summer and fall show season, the herd has enjoyed plenty of summer fun as well. Please enjoy some highlights in Horse Days of Summer.
