Connecting with Rescue Horses w/ Chris Lombard
9:00 AM - 3:00 PM





 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.

Patrick Ross & the Fiddler’s Crew
7:00 PM





 Admission: Six-person pod – $120.00, four-person pod – $80.00, two-person pod – $40.00

 

(Tickets are $20 per person, but are sold in pods of 2, 4, or 6 people.
Ticket prices do not include any applicable fees or sales taxes.

By purchasing a ticket you are agreeing to the code of conduct listed below (a copy will be attached to your confirmation email).

“Patrick Ross & The Fiddler’s Crew” is a result of turning pandemic lemons into lemonade, or in this case, crabapples into cider. With a halt in touring and live performances, Ross put all his creative energy into writing and rehearsing songs about life in Vermont. “Uncle Joe’s Camp” is inspired by Patrick’s childhood memories of growing up on the international waters of Lake Wallace in Canaan, Vermont. Another, “Sugar Shack”, is about the hustle and excitement of living in a place with four seasons. “Bear Rock Road” is about his mother’s farmer-style school bus driving days. “Woodshed” spins around the idea that we all have that certain place we like to go to get a clear head. There are 18 songs in the new collection.

All three band members call the Upper Valley of Vermont their home. Bassist and trumpet player, Mike Conerty, is a native of Long Island, New York. His urban sophistication brings energy and excitement to the group. Drummer, Chad Brunet, is a native of New Orleans, Louisiana. His deep musical wisdom and soulful expression bring power to the stage. Front man, Patrick Ross, plays fiddle, guitars, mandolin, banjo, cello and is the lead vocalist. His Vermont roots run deep in folk traditions. “My mother is Quebecois, my father is Acadian and I’m a fifth generation fiddle player.” proclaims Ross. Collectively, The Crew blends harmony vocals in a way that supports the story of each song.

Bring a friend or two, come watch and listen to how these three Vermont musicians have been spending their pandemic time honing their craft, and let your soul take in some live music again.
