HORSE HUSBANDRY MADE EASY AND FUN!

April 15th and July 15th

Domestic life requires our horses to be daily available for activities that can feel unnatural and unpleasant to them. Hoof picking, trimming, vet checks, being tacked up, dewormed, even just haltered!

In our experience, kindness, knowledge, active listening and consent go a long way in counter-conditioning these activities for them! In this clinic, we explore tools to help each horse find their unique way through finding husbandry easy and fun.

Intrinzen and Passionate Movement

June 17th

One and a half day intensive! We are going to dig deep into consent protocols with activities that our horses struggle with. Also, we will explore what modern science says about movement, “being in shape” and motor skills acquisition both at a theoretical and practical level.

If you are hoping to gain skills to make your horse gladly cooperative in activities such as riding or tacking up, and if you’d like for them to be eager movers, no matter the starting point, this might be a clinic for you
