Private Lessons and Workshops

Please contact me if you are interested in setting up a private workshop for yourself and  friends! I love the more intimate sized teaching opportunities to share weather its focused on:

Hackamore/Bridle Horse: Beginning with an in depth look at the genius behind this time honored tradition, proper gear selection, fit and application, through introducing the often radically different way of riding that focuses on ourselves.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Feel, Timing and Balance:

Yup…the big ‘un’s. And what I love to explore! I call this the mortar between the foundational building blocks and incredibly profound for us to dig into; both for ourselves and our horses.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Feel Like a Kid”: These camps are a ridiculously fun and sneaky way to help us become more present, aware, playful,  and right brained; all tromped on skills we’ve left behind that as we ”grew-up’  that allow us to become available for ourselves and others, including our horses and set the stage for developing feel. Seriously silly growth and comedy.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Art and Horsemanship:  Mixing my two loves into one magnificent offering that will allow us time to ”be’, space to dabble, room to experiment, safety to question. These two are so alike and supportive of one another not to mention about the ONLY thing we want to paint!  If ever you’re like me and have Lost Art, a longing to create that you’ve never explored for all out myraid of reasons and want to try…

Three years ago I dregged up out of the back closet, way down underneath some long forgotten totes, single socks, shrunken western shirts and in amongst the dust bunnies….my passion for Art. It was moldy, barely recognizable and so sad and tattered, but I tenderly carried it out into the light, had a good cry and am now nursing it back to vibrant, shiney happy health. it takes some nurturing by kindness, patience and buckets of compassion, faith in the outcome, wonder in curiousity and JOY…oh the JOY of actually creating cannot even be described! I feel thisA-9websiteA-7 guilty, gleeful, skippy feeling when I allow myself time to ponder what I may paint next, staring at photos, buying canvasses(FUN!) and paint, taking a workshop to help guide me and direct this rag tag drive to MAKE STUFF..

Soooo in my journey of doing all this, guess what? well well well, imagine that! There are all kinds of you! Others, just like me that never had the time, one day, blank canvas fears, no talent (but oh so want to), no energy, one day, too busy, other obligations…one day. So so many of you who really really want to do SOMETHING with art…but what and how and when and and and where to begin.

Well, guess what? Begin here, with a three day Art and Horse camp with yours truly, fellow “One Day”-er. I tried this a couple years ago…and surprise surprise! No one showed up! hahahaha! So trying again….gently nudging any of you who have ever or never but wished to pick up a paint brush, squeeze some clay, or even write to come out with your horse, or borrow one of mine and hang out together and paint stick horses, stick trees and stick sticks…no pressure, just play. My vision is to experiment with the paint, experiment with some plastisine clay, hang out with the horses, sketch them as badly or goodly as we want, hang out by the river, paint our horses( literally, on their hair) day dream, ride in the evenings maybe, see what unfolds in a nurturing, supportive inspiring, safe way with other kindred spirits who are every bit a daunted at creating and juet gently coaxing your Lost Art to come out, come out come out and play….
