Farm Days: Women Who Horse
Saturday, May. 18
11:00 am - 2:00 pm
“How many of you remember the first time you saw a horse?”
Join Jennifer Canfield for a workshop about the human-horse connection, the agricultural aspects of horse keeping, behavior and the predator/prey dynamic, our expectations, the importance of keeping in the moment, and how being with horses enhances our human to human relationships. Long-time horse owner, Jennifer halted her breeding program in 2004 in favor of advocating for unwanted horses. “Each life is precious. As humans we need to be willing to evolve in our thinking,” Jennifer explains. The program begins at the Farm Arts Collective greenhouse at Willow Wisp Organic Farm. Participants will then walk next door to Jennifer’s barn (meet the horses) and enjoy some freestyle corral time up front. Sturdy footwear is strongly recommended.
Farm Days are monthly workshops that focus on farming, food, and ecology. Led by professionals and self-taught experts in their field, Farm Day workshops are open to all community members and take place at the Farm Arts Collective greenhouse, at Willow Wisp Organic Farm. Workshops typically include farm fresh refreshments.
