Farm Days: “Women Who Horse” workshop on May 18

By: Contributed Photo
The workshop will cover information about the agricultural aspects of horse keeping, behavior and the predator/prey dynamic, the importance of keeping in the moment, and how being with horses enhances our human to human relationships.
DAMASCUS, PA - Join Jennifer Canfield for a workshop about the human-horse connection. The workshop takes place Saturday, May 18 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., and is part of a series entitled “Farm Days,” presented by Farm Arts Collective, located at 38 Hickory Lane, Damascus, PA (1 mile from Callicoon off River Rd.
)
The workshop will cover information about the agricultural aspects of horse keeping, behavior and the predator/prey dynamic, the importance of keeping in the moment, and how being with horses enhances our human to human relationships.
Long-time horse owner, Jennifer halted her breeding program in 2004 in favor of advocating for unwanted horses. “Each life is precious. As humans we need to be willing to evolve in our thinking,” Jennifer explains.
The program begins at the Farm Arts Collective greenhouse located at Willow Wisp Organic Farm, and then participants will then walk next door to Jennifer's barn to hear Jennifer's presentation followed by some freestyle corral time up front to meet the horses. Sturdy footwear is strongly recommended. Hosts Jennifer Canfield and Tannis Kowalchuk of Farm Arts Collective will provide a light lunch.
Interested participants are asked to register online at www.farmartscollective.org. $15 workshop fee. Walk-ins also welcome. *We honor a sliding scale for all events. Please email us at info@FarmArtsCollective.org for details.
Farm Arts Collective is dedicated to nourishing community through programs in farming, art, food, and ecology.
