This unique clinic features the most current scientific research about equine brains combined with demonstrations by Mark. You'll see in real-time how working with horses and applying the knowledge of how a horse perceives the world can be beneficial to building a stronger relationship.

A morning lecture will be followed by lunch, and then demonstrations by Mark with Dr. Peters helping us to understand the applications of scientific concepts.

*All participants must have either attended “Your Horse’s Brain: A User’s Manual,” or watched the DVD of the same name. We will happily take your word that you’ve done so. We will be expanding on previous topics and going deeper and looking at some of the complexities of the horse's brain and behavior.
