We are happy to announce that Chris Lombard will be returning to the Sanctuary this year to lead us on another journey of connection and understanding horses.
Through Chris’ gentle and knowledgeable guidance last summer, our group was able to learn a great deal about how to connect with the horses we partnered with on a much deeper level. We also had incredible results in a short time of positive responses and altered behavior in the horses, some with abusive pasts.
This clinic will be one the ground only, the location where the foundation of a quality relationship with a horse is built.
Participants will learn how to communicate effectively without the use of force, welcoming the horse to use it’s voice and willingly partner with the person.
Location: Mountain View Farm Animal Sanctuary 3383 Darling Hill Rd, East Burke, VT
