Your Horse's Brain: A User's Manual

Location: Arroyo Grande, California
Instructors: Dr. Stephen Peters, Mark Rashid & Jim Masterson
Date: October 20-22, 2023
Time: 4:30 p.m. Oct. 20, 9:00 am – 5:00 pm Oct. 21-22

Join us for three days of learning about the science behind what makes horses do what they do and how we can learn to communicate more clearly with them.

Dr. Steve Peters, Neuropsychologist, horseman, and co-author of “Evidence Based Horsemanship”, will be at Big Horse Ranch to lecture on the ins and outs of the horse’s brain and the science behind how they think, feel, and process the world around them.

He will be joined by equine clinician and author, Mark Rashid, as well as Jim Masterson, the founder of The Masterson Method®. Both equine professionals will add their perspectives on where bodywork and training intersect with brain science, and how we can use all three perspectives to understand and deepen the relationship with our horses.

This three day seminar is for those who are seeking to expand their knowledge of horses, and will include not only a lecture segment, but practical demonstrations, an equine brain dissection, and a round table discussion with Dr. Peters, Jim and Mark.

The cost of the clinic is $500.  Space is limited to forty people for this seminar, and we expect this to sell out quickly!
