Debra and I are pleased to announce that we will be offering another clinic in Healdsburg from January 14th thru the 16th. Our event in August was so well received, and sold out, so it’s time to plan the next!
There will be a particular emphasis this time on greater interaction with the auditors, opportunities for auditors to experience the work-in-hand techniques, more question and answer periods and a greater audio visual component. In other words, we want EVERYONE involved! Send us an email right way to reserve your spot. Many seats are already taken. ( Barbierfarm@aol.com ).
And….coming up even sooner, we are returning to Brazil in late November. We will depart the U. S. on the 26th of November and return on the 4th or 5th of December, whichever your commitments allow. We will have a full three day clinic at the beginning of the trip on highly schooled horses in a beautiful setting, and then we will spend the next five days visiting the spectacular Lusitano horse farms. You will have the opportunity to ride horse after horse, according to your ability and interest. You will learn a great deal about the breed, see the finest the farms have to offer (only the most spectacular horses in the world) and enjoy a warm welcome of legendary Brazilian hospitality at each of the farms we visit. Please contact us via email or phone (707-696-2828). This way, Debra and I can be thinking of which farms to visit to show you horses that are most appropriate to your needs. As readers of this blog will know, Debra and I visit many of the farms several times a year to follow the training progress of literally hundreds of horses. We are confident that we can find your perfect horse. For non-buyers, this trip will educate and enlighten riders at any level. The temperament and functionality of the Lusitano breed make them the ideal horse with which to further your riding skills.
