Learning to Read Horses, Awareness, Feel and Body Language
Equine ACA invites you for a first-of-its-kind demonstrations with Smokie Brannaman, Leslie Leline and Pam Kachelmeier that is open to anyone, with or without horse experience.
Saturday, September 30, 2017 – Coach Horse Ranch in Kiel, WI
Whether you work or play with horses or not, we can all find a country setting in which to be around these splendid creatures. To ride them, sit with them, observe them, and most importantly, to learn from them.
Horses are masters at teaching you many things such as intuitive-awareness and feel, timing, trust and patience. They help you to see your inner strengths and weaknesses, your true motivation from the inside out, and the person you most want to become in the world.
We want to understand and know how to develop communication, concentration, and cooperation with horses, to use our thoughts and all of our innate senses to form that special bond.
Whether we call it Natural Horsemanship, Universal Horsemanship, Relational Horsemanship, or just Horsemanship, the horse continues to capture our heart and soul. There will always be a human fascination with this four legged creature and how they can help us to live our lives.
Watch as Smokie, Leslie, and Pam demonstrate communicating with horses.
You can attend one demonstration or all three. Watch, learn and ask questions with:
