This weekend, Dr. Steve Peters and Martin Black will make their final presentations before their May seminar for Evidence-Based Horsemanship.
The pair will be speaking at the National Cowboy Poetry Gathering in Elko, Nevada.
Tonight, they’ll present at the Great Basin College. Friday, they’ll be at the Elko Convention Center.
Peters will speak about the horse’s brain chemistry, development, and functioning. Black will give anecdotal evidence and empirical observations connected to the science. Putting this information to use, they suggest, will create a better understanding of horse behavior and can potentially improve one’s horsemanship.
The Gathering is in its 29th year and continues to offer an incredible eclectic mix of all things cowboy.
Black and Peters share the floor with poets, singer-songwriters, rawhide braiders, and, of course, fellow horsemen. It’s an educational and entertainment festival with a distinguished worldwide reputation.
This year, Italian cowboys or butteri are highlighted.
I had no idea.
