> PRESS RELEASE
> A HEAD TO HOOF LEARNING EXPERIENCE ...
> Making the Connections
> THE HORSE GATHERING
> Estes Park, CO - August 21 - 25, 2000 - THE HORSE GATHERING
> How many times have horsemanship students wished they could learn more
> about horses in a way that puts the "whole horse" together? Rather
> than focus just on anatomy or training issues or rider balance or any
> other single aspect of horsemanship, wouldn't it be wonderful to be in a
> place where ALL the pieces fit together to create the big picture -- the
> WHOLE picture?
> A distinguished group of clinicians, dedicated to just this type of
> educational experience, have committed themselves to providing a unique
> study program. Students who would like to be exposed to a "head to
> hoof" approach to horsemanship from respected and well-known experts in
> their fields ... will want to attend THE HORSE GATHERING.
> "The Horse Gathering" is an intensive week-long conference being held
> August 21st to 25th, 2000, in Estes Park, Colorado.
> The format is designed so that students are exposed to all the topics
> with ample opportunities to interact with the clinicians for questions
> and discussions. No need to rush from one lecture to another for fear
> of missing any presentation. The goals of this program are bold: a
> comprehensive and interactive approach designed to maximize learning!
> The first two days will introduce all students to the wide variety of
> topics that will touch upon the fundamental issues involved in a
> comprehensive approach to horsemanship. The following three days are
> set up so that students will break into smaller groups for more detailed
> information about each topic. There will also be optional topics on
> adult learning and instructor techniques, legal issues, computers, and
> marketing. Two evenings will include a "round-table" discussion with
> all the clinicians participating. And lastly, there will be a
> conference dinner held that will offer some FUN and even more one-on-one
> interaction with the clinicians.
> Whether a professional who currently works in the equine industry or a
> student of any level of horsemanship, those who hunger for a way to put
> the pieces together for a total "head to hoof" understanding will want
> to check out the impressive list of educators involved in this project.
