Equine Guelph will benefit from a special presentation by 5 Star Master Parelli Professional trainer David Lichman who is coming to Rockwood, ON on Friday, September 6, 2013.
Lichman’s show is improvisational. Although there are specific things the horses know, the horses have a say in what happens, depending on how they are feeling. The result is a display of affection, bonding and respect. By asking instead of telling them to do things, Lichman puts his relationship with the horse above all else.
“I try to help people connect with horses so that it’s fun for both the human and the horse,” said the California based horse trainer.
The show will take place from 7:00p.m. to 9:00pm at: Northfield Farm, 8368 Hwy 7 Rockwood, Ontario. N0B 2K0.
Gayle Ecker, Director of Equine Guelph, will share the spotlight with Lichman and his three horses as the evening’s guest speaker.
Lichman’s lifelong passion for helping humans and horses has inspired him to collaborate with equine organizations worldwide. His first encounter with Equine Guelph was with researcher Dr. Jeff Thomason, a leading expert in measuring stress in the hoof. Lichman was intrigued with the future research applications that could be made with the ability to electronically measure and quantify stress applied to the hoof.
Fifty percent of the proceeds of the one and only Canadian show date on Lichman’s North American tour will go to Equine Guelph.
