If you live in southwest Colorado, this fall will bring you two outstanding educational opportunities.
If you do not live in southwest Colorado, let those two outstanding educational opportunities be your best excuse to visit the region, where we like to say “The West Still Lives!”
Randy Rieman, a renowned colt starter and clinician, will visit the Durango area on September 24-26. The Dorrance protégé has received high praise for his clinics. His well of knowledge runs deep with expertise in multiple disciplines including horsemanship, stockmanship, and roping. Read clinic feedback here.
Consider staying the week as Rieman, also a renowned cowboy poetry reciter, will join fellow performers at the Durango Cowboy Poetry Gathering, September 29-October 2.
Also in the area, Dr. Steve Peters and Martin Black will give an Evidence-Based Horsemanship seminar, November 18-20.
In the morning sessions, attendees will learn all about horse brain structure, development, neurochemistry, neuroanatomy, how horse behavior relates to brain function, and how to apply that concept to proper training and management practices.
The afternoon sessions will be spent in a controlled environment (round pen or arena) to reinforce the concepts learned in the morning sessions.
Participants will observe demonstrations and learn directly from Black’s hands-on lessons using evidence-based methods, and will have the opportunity to put the concepts to use themselves (subject to number of participants). Read seminar coverage here.
Save the dates!
We’ll post more information, including registration forms, costs, lodging accommodations, and extracurricular ideas (sight seeing, etc.) soon.
