Creating Harmony with Horse Speak

Co-Taught by Sharon Wilsie & Heidi Potter

Sharon Wilsie and Heidi Potter have partnered to offer a clinic like no other. Combined they bring over 80 years of horse experience, a passion for teaching, a sense of humor and a commitment to helping horses and their humans. Using principals derived from their training in traditional martial arts, Heidi and Sharon will set students on a journey of deeper understanding about themselves, the world around them and how it all affects their horse’s behavior.

This 3-day clinic is about approaching horsemanship from a patient, compassionate, heart centered place, beginning with mindfulness and self-awareness. Through interactive exercises, herd observation and hands-on application, participants will learn the fundamentals of Horse Speak. Understanding horses’ incredibly subtle communication system and how to offer a meaningful and appropriate response will bring your horsemanship skills to a new level. The lessons learned will set you on a pathway of understanding and give you the tools needed to help support horses, emotionally, mentally and physically.

If you are in search of a true form of Holistic Horsemanship then this clinic is for you. Join Sharon and Heidi, and experience what it is like to learn, laugh and love your way into your horse’s heart.
