Description

Would you like to come audit Checkpoint One's Mustang Gentling event over Veteran's Day Weekend at the Meadow Event Farm?

Audit tickets are $30 each day or $75 for all three days. Tickets can be purchased at the gate on the days of the event (cash only)

For three full days, eight participants will be immersed in a hands-on experience in which they will learn to safely gentle, and handle a wild horse under the supervision and guidance of experienced clinicians.

The objective of this amazing experience is to create an experience and journey of ‘building relationship.’ A relationship is built over the course of three days between horses and humans, using kind techniques based on horse psychology rather than forceful tactics to influence the horse’s behavior. At the end of the three days, often participants walk away with transformative life skills, and with the notion that “I did not gentle the mustang as much as it gentled me.”

The overall three day experience will involve wild horse gentling and ground training instructed by professional skilled mustang trainers from Lifesavers Wild Horse Rescue. Participants will be partnered with a wild mustang in a round pen and they will have the opportunity to connect with a wild horse helping it to learn to trust humans and preparing it for a life of domestication. The entire three days consists of ground activities only.

You can use this opportunity to learn more about how to work with your horse. There will be availability for question and answers with our two Lifesaver's Wild Horse Rescue Gentlers, including George Thomas (aka The Native Horseman).
