August Clinic? – Save the Dates

We are trying to book Alessandra Deerinck of Human Horse Sensing to come and  teach a one day clinic the weekend of August 12 and 13.   Save the dates if you are interested!

We are working on the details with the Summerwind and Future Foal group now.  The clinic will either be here at Summerwind Ranch in Pagosa Springs Colorado or at Silver Stables in Phoenix, AZ.

Cost for participating is $100.

Cost for auditing will be less, but is not known at this time.

“In a time and age when most of us keep horses by choice, not by need, Human Horse Sensing is dedicated to teaching people who want to interact with them in a way that horses would choose to participate freely.   Let us take you deeper than traditional training, and show you how to understand, learn, and play from your horse’s perspective.” — Alessandra Deerinck

Brazil Trip 2017

We have plans to go to the National Show in July and to visit some Marchador horse breeding farms while we are there.   We go to learn more about the breed, the training, the genetics and the philosophies from the breeders and trainers there.   But, our goal is always to find and import new genetics to the U.S. for our continued improvement and diversity here.      Most often, this is by importing frozen semen.

So, even before we go, we can start the photo album of some of the Marchador horses and farms that we expect to see.
