Join us Memorial Day Weekend May 25th – 29th for our annual Wild Horse Boot Camp
This wild horse gentling and training journey will take place in the beautiful foothills of the Sierras known as Caliente, California (aka Twin Oaks). You will stay in cute little cabins at Wild Horse Canyon part of the 1000 acre horse rescue ranch belonging to Lifesavers Wild Horse Rescue. All meals will be provided.
This program’s activities will involve wild horse gentling and ground training instructed by professional skilled mustang trainers. You will be partnered with rescued wild mustangs in a round pen and you will have the opportunity to connect with a wild horse helping it learn to trust humans and preparing it for a life of domestication. This entire program consists of ground activities only. There will be no riding activities. No previous horse experience is necessary – you will learn everything you need to know from your instructors.
PLEASE ARRIVE Thursday evening, May 25th 2017 BETWEEN 4PM & 7PM, to get settled and rested before the activities begin Friday morning. Our last activity is scheduled for Monday morning, May 29th, with the program concluding after lunch. You will have 3.5 days of intensive wild horse partnership and leadership building. You will learn about herd behavior, body language, approach and retreat, giving to the pressure, soft feel, and more. Everything you experience and learn is easily transferable to other horses….and maybe even some people too.
It’s a weekend packed with horses, but don’t worry, there will be plenty of time to relax and enjoy the beautiful atmosphere of the sanctuary. Don’t forget your camera because there’s plenty to take photos of. And your hiking boots, because there are magical hills full of hidden secrets just waiting for your discovery.
