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!
