Chris Lombard will be joining us once again at the Mountain View Farm Animal Sanctuary to facilitate a one-day workshop focused on working with rescue horses.
Chris’ approach to working with horses is centered around developing a trusting bond with mutual understanding and the use of compassion, not dominance and force, to communicate.
This workshop is for those who partner or work with horses with a past of abuse, neglect or trauma of some degree, that has created an imbalance with how they communicate with humans.
The mission is to develop trust and partnership between you and the horse, with a focus on facilitating a positive experience for your equine companion that assists them in healing and moving forward.
We have an array of rescue horses on premises for participants to partner with, however, it may be possible to attend with your horse. Please contact me to discuss details if you would like to do so.
Active participants are limited, so please let me know soon if you would like to attend as such.
FEE for participating is $150/day.
Auditing is also available and encouraged, without a limit.
FEE for auditing is $25/person for the day.
Please RSVP by Saturday, April 24th if you plan to attend.
This is a fantastic opportunity for anyone that; has a rescue horse(s) they’ve recently acquired, wants to deepen their skills of working with horses of this nature, works with a rescue organization, etc.
You will get a great foundation to work from and tools to develop over the upcoming season.
