Upcoming Events


Learning and Behavior Workshop


August 12  9am-12pm

Image description

Working with 1000 lbs prey animals with unique personalities and

experience is no easy task.  What can make it even more frustrating are the myths and misconceptions we are taught about equine behavior, herd dynamics, and the way horses learn.  For example, did you know that science has disproven the concept of dominance and submission in horse society?? 


We can also be lured into believing that our horses are "stupid, lazy, disrespectful,

or out to get us." Nothing could be further from the truth.  Join us to learn what horses really  about interactions with us and one another.  Learn how working with your horse's natural instincts.  It is the most effective and ethical way to teach new

behaviors and resolve undesireable ones. 


This is a classroom-style event and will be held indoors.

We will provide beverages and light snacks.

                    $60 per person                      

Equine Nutrition Workshop


August 26 9am - 12 pm

Does your horse suffer from a bad attitude, unsoundness, colic, performance issues, or  hoof problems?  Is he too fat or too thin?  All of these conditions can be caused by an imbalanced diet.  Equine nutrition is one of the most confusing and least understood aspects of horse care.   Don't worry.  You don't need a PhD to to feed your horse.


You need is a basic understanding of the equine gastro-intestinal system, which we will cover at this workshop.  We will also go over what all horses need to be healthy, how to recognize nutritional imbalance, and formulate a balanced diet.  We will also talk about common deficiencies and foes of your horse's overall health.  


Feeding hay and water is not enough! 

Join us to learn how to improve your horse's health.

This is a classroom-style event and will be held indoors.  

We will provide beverages and light snacks.


$60 per person
