This episode is an On the Fence segment, a time for Jec and me to talk about what’s up lately. And lately it has been all about the Best Horse Practices Summit. This is the conference I direct and where Jec presented. The Summit has been in Colorado and Maine and this year we held it at Spy Coast Farm in Lexington Kentucky.
Our roster included Jec and eight other presenters, giving academic and arena presentations on everything from hooves and worms to biomechanics and foundational horsemanship.
We had more attendees than ever and while the weather wasn’t ideal, the ambiance was. You’ll hear more the conference as well as a bit about my new book, Beasts of Being, Partnerships Unburdened.
We thank Lucerne Farms for their sustaining sponsorship. Lucerne is a forage company based in Northern Maine. Forage is chopped hay, an excellent option when you can’t have your horse on pasture or when you need to add calories and nutrients to your horses’ diet.
You can learn more about the Summit, a 501 c 3 non profit organization, here. You will find links to dozens of full presentations as well as trailers from past years. All 2021 presentations will be available in early 2022.
