HORSE NUTRITION DEMYSTIFIED. PROVEN TECHNIQUES REVEALED.

Don't miss your chance to hear Dr. Ward discuss the latest developments in equine nutrition. As a holistic veterinarian, she keenly understands the need for more natural and organic feeds and supplements. She will discuss how various diets directly impact a horse's wellbeing. The clinic will begin with a morning session about the fundamentals of natural eating for horses who are currently healthy, as well as those who have health issues. The afternoon session is focused on helping horse owners use nutrition to heal chronic health issues such as hormone problems, ulcers, insulin resistance, laminitis, Cushings disease, and arthritis. Dr. Ward has a straightforward approach that will help you take control of what goes into your horse's mouth to directly improve its quality of life. Attendees will gain a holistic sense of nutrition as we explore topics including:

• How a horse’s digestion affects the nutrients she/he absorbs
• The effects of stress and "burnout" in horses
• What type is your horse? Chinese medicine horse types and how their nutritional needs differ
• Identifying your horse's personal "stress emotion"
• Nutrient-dense whole foods and their impact on digestion
• Nutrition to alleviate pain, heal joints, manage hormone issues, and support healthy metabolism

Meet Madalyn Ward, DVM

Madalyn Ward, DVM graduated from Texas A&M University in 1980 and worked in an equine vet practice until 1985. She then started her own practice at Bear Creek Veterinary Clinic in Austin, Texas. Yet, after four more years of practice, she remained frustrated about many aspects of western medicine.

In 1989 she began researching alternative healing methods and was amazed at the wealth of knowledge that led to true healing -- knowledge largely ignored by conventional teaching institutions. Ever since, she's been on a mission to educate and inspire the horse-owning public and practicing veterinarians who have faced similar frustrations and are open to alternative methods.

Dr. Ward is trained in Veterinary Homeopathy, Acupuncture, Bowen Therapy, Network Chiropractic, and Equine Osteopathy and is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association, American Association of Equine Practitioners, and American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association. She has also authored three books including Holistic Horsekeeping, Horse Harmony: Understanding Horse Types and Temperaments, and Horse Harmony: Five Element Feeding Guide.

EXPERIENCE HARMONY WITH YOUR HORSE. WE'LL SHOW YOU HOW.

Does your relationship with your horse feel like a constant struggle or a mutually-beneficial partnership? Harmony is defined as "the simultaneous combination of tones, especially when blended into chords pleasing to the ear." Applying the same concept to horsemanship, harmony occurs when all the elements of horse and rider are completely in tune.

Think about it: When is the last time your leg aids, seat, mindset, gaits, and horse-human communication worked together as one? Maybe you've never felt it before, or perhaps it's simply been a while. Like any beautiful melody, riding harmoniously takes time and effort. But, it's well worth it.

No matter your skill level, discipline, background, or horse, you'll discover that true harmony is within your grasp at Jess Holloway's upcoming Harmonious Horsemanship clinic in Great Falls, MT. He'll teach you proven skills and exercises to help you work in concert with your equine partner and create something truly beautiful.

Sessions are limited to eight riders to ensure lots of one-on-one attention from Jess!

Is your horse a willing and reliable partner in every circumstance?

Whether you're interested in working cows or racking up your trail miles, it's essential that your horse be responsive and under control in all conditions. Jess Holloway's upcoming Cow Working Basics and Trail Techniques clinic in Bozeman, MT puts you on the right path. Choose the focus area that best aligns with your goals and ride away inspired, empowered, and with a clear understanding of how to continue your horse's training long-term.

Sessions are limited to eight riders to ensure lots of one-on-one attention from Jess!

OPTION A: Cow Working Basics (Friday and Saturday from 9:00 am - 1:00 pm)*

If you've dreamed of working cows but aren't quite sure how to begin—or whether you want to brush up your existing skills—this session is for you. Jess will teach you (and your horse) how to safely and effectively work with cows... and how to have fun doing it! This gentle introduction (or refresher) to cow work will help horses and riders build a solid foundation that will serve them for years to come. Best of all, the skills gained during this clinic extend to all other riding disciplines. So, whether you simply want to give cow work a try for a weekend, or need a little "tune up," the focus, leg control, and seat control from this workshop will improve your riding experience every time you put your foot in the stirrup.

*NO prior cow working experience needed. In addition, clinic cows will be treated humanely and not overworked.

OPTION B: Trail Riding Techniques (Friday and Saturday from 2:30 pm - 5:30 pm)

When most people hear the term "trail horses," they envision a string of sleepy head-to-tail steeds plodding down a level trail. But, a safe and reliable trail horse actually needs a multitude of refined skills and the mindset to remain willing and calm under a variety of conditions and in the face of various obstacles.

This clinic will help properly prepare your horse to be a trail horse (in the best sense of the words). Jess will guide you through exercises and real-life scenarios that help your horse overcome fear, use its body effectively on steep terrain, and navigate common trail obstacles like bridges, bogs, and forests.

The right time to hone these skills is before you find yourself out the trail, far from home, facing a difficult situation. If you want to trail ride with your horse in the future—or if your equine partner needs a trail tune-up—this clinic is for you!
