Where: Willow Hope Farm, 4416 Todds Point Road, Simpsonville, KY 40067
Registration Deadline: Wednesday, July 17

Take a dive into the biomechanics of the horse, and the impact of the nervous system on posture. You will learn how horses perceive and move within their environment through lecture, demonstration, and 1-on-1 sessions with trainer and educator, Annemieke Buis. We will discuss how the tongue, jaw and thoracic sling of the horse are the key to unlocking the muscular, neurological and myofascial chains through the body to relaxation and balance. Participants will work hand-in-hand with Annemieke Buis and their horse, or one of the Home Herd horses at Willow Hope Farm. All levels of skill and soundness welcome.

Coggins, health certificates, and/or vaccination records are required. Please submit those via email to [email protected] by Wednesday, July 17th.

Payment must be received in advance to reserve participation slots, but auditors can pay the day of. Payment is nonrefundable unless we are able to fill the slot in the case of a cancellation.
