Our workshops are fun, supportive, incredibly informative, and above all, taught with complete respect for our two and four legged students.   There is no need to feel intimidated or worry about “not knowing enough”.  

Participants of all levels enjoy a great learning environment whether they are brand new or have been professionals for decades.    We all learn from each other and the “layered” nature of the work brings people back time and time again for added nuances and new developments.

Whether you are attending a workshop in person or online, are seeking certification or personal learning, you will walk away with a new understanding about animals, and likely yourself.

The SUREFOOT Equine Stability Program is a unique, innovative way for the horse to be his own teacher. Developed by Wendy Murdoch, this revolutionary way of improving your horse’s balance, confidence, movement and performance shows that the horse is always present and ready to learn if we can only find ways to access his intelligence. This approach allows the horse to experience his own habitual patterns of movement and provides the horse with an opportunity to explore and learn new ways of standing on his feet and utilizing the ground for greater ease, comfort and confidence.

With SUREFOOT, using a variety of stability and balance pads, horses discover how they are habitually standing. The pad gives under the horse’s weight bringing his attention to where he is placing his feet and providing new information to the balancing part of his nervous system. With this awareness the horse explores, shifts and alters his habitual patterns of standing and moving by himself, ultimately choosing a more secure and effective way to stand and move. The horse retrains himself to stand better without human interference.

In addition to reprogramming the balancing portion of the brain, there is obviously an affect on the instinctive part of the brain. While it cannot be fully explained, there is a calming effect, shifting the horse from the fight & flight reaction or sympathetic autonomic nervous system (ANS) response to the grazing or parasympathetic (ANS) response. Some horses experience an even deeper level of relaxation believed to be caused by a release of endorphins somehow triggered by standing on the pads. In some cases a gentle swaying is observed while the horse is standing on the pads.

These exercises are a great way to enhance your relationship with your horse, increase the efficacy of current body work routines, and improve balance, proprioception and performance.

Learn the techniques on one of the farm’s cooperative, gentle, horses.

$300.00 plus gst, includes homemade lunches and snacks. (COVID regulations may apply)
