Great news for those interested in Evidence-Based Horsemanship:
Horseman Martin Black and neuroscientist Dr. Steve Peters have a DVD in the works and a May seminar planned.
The DVD will be an introduction to concepts articulated in the book, Evidence-Based Horsemanship, published in 2012. Producer Emily Kitching, president of Eclectic Horseman, said it will be out this spring.
The production “will give people a deeper understanding of horsemanship,” said Kitching, who has overseen articles and DVDs by some of the world’s finest horsemen and women.
“This DVD will validate what good horsemen and women know to be true, but haven’t known why it’s true,” said Kitching. “It demystifies things without taking anything away from the horse.”
Black, who traveled to Colorado to work on the project with Kitching and Peters, said making the film is a bit like mining: “There’s a lot of material. We’re sorting through it to find the precious minerals,” he said.
Added Peters, “We felt strongly that we wanted to capture these concepts in actual footage to allow our audience to better visualize the concepts from the book.”
The upcoming three-day seminar will be held in Sherwood, Oregon (just outside Portland), May 31-June 2. It starts with a free Friday evening session and follows with chock-full days on Saturday and Sunday. Total cost is $250. For more information, click here.
