Montana Horse Sanctuary sponsors a Variety of 

Workshops for Summer and Fall of 2012

 

Hi Horse Friends -
Attached are two flyers about our 2012 workshops!
We start June 2 with a nutrition workshop taught by Dr. Steven Duren, equine nutritionist.  Then we get on our horses and ride at two safe trailriding workshops co-taught by Jess Holloway and Spencer Dominick.  We come back to the Sanctuary ranch for photographing, drawing and painting horses with photographer John Ashley and artist Diane Hausmann.  Jess Holloway will teach a horse problem-solving clinic in Simms in September and we will wrap up the season in October with Caring for the Rescued Horse, levels 1 and 2.  For more information, please look below.  If have questions, e-mail me at the address below.

Please help us spread the word about our workshops — pass this e-mail to a horse friend!

Happy Trails,

Basic Communication between horses and their people is essential for progress at any level whether it is training, riding, handling or health. our workshops focus on providing horse people with fundamental tools and techniques. The concepts taught are based on the horse’s point of view.

 

Our workshops this year offer a great variety of learning opportunities for riders, non-riders, artists and horse caretakers. All Sanctuary horse workshops offer humane methods to help horses and people communicate more effectively and interact more safely together.

 

Like most horse owners, I find myself seeking new information to make my horses’ lives better. As a rider, I have my limitations (don’t we all?) and seek better ways to harmonize with my horses. The Sanctuary’s workshops for 2012 offer a variety of ways for us to be better with our horses and to enrich our relationships. Our workshops are taught by respected professionals. All workshops are offered at the best possible price we can provide – all are at-cost.

 

We ask that you pay the full workshop price when you sign up for a workshop. We must receive registrations and full payment from the minimum number of students by the day registration closes. If we don’t have enough participants for a workshop, it will be cancelled and your registration fee fully refunded. Please contact us if you have questions, concerns or ideas for future workshops.
