Horse Speak® Clinic

July 9 @ 9:00 am - July 11 @ 5:00 pm


Due to requests from the Healing Rein horse community this event has changed! We are excited to announce a much deeper dive into Horse Speak!!! Day 1 and part of Day 2 is First Conversations. Day 2 Afternoon and Day 3 are a series of Horse Speak topics based on participant interests. We now have a half Day 4 opportunity for private lessons. These are separate from the clinic but provide very specific feedback 1:1 with Heidi. If you have had First Conversations please contact Colleen Price for guidance in sign up.



Horse Speak “First Conversations” Introduction Clinic

Join Horse Speak Senior Instructor Heidi Potter at Healing Rein Farm. Discover how to listen to what horses are saying and how to respond in a way that they can understand. A few basic “vocabulary words”, a willingness to listen, and an open heart and mind are all you need to enter the conversation.

This is the first step and required for all other sessions at Healing Rein. Facility horses only are used for this portion as it is based on the existing herd dynamics.

Day 2/3 is an opportunity for participants to bring their own horses and work to apply the beginning conversation in a supported series of sessions. Participants attend all the sessions as each person explores and learns progressive methods of application through Days 2 and 3. We can provide horses for folks traveling too far to bring their horse. Minis and riding horses are on site.

Day 4 is an opportunity to schedule a private or semi private lesson with Heidi to meet a target need for you and your horse. Again, you can work with a Healing Rein horse if you can’t travel with yours.

This is an unusual format and an unique opportunity at this time. We have worked hard with Sharon, Laura and Heidi to provide a unique experience. For those who wanted agility sessions we will still provide the experience from the Horse  Speak perspective with less emphasis on the International Regulations.

The cost for the weekend is $700 including breakfast and lunch onsite and stabling for 1 horse for the weekend. You can use our trails all 3 evenings at no additional cost. Auditing is $100 per day and includes breakfast and lunch on site. First Conversations is limited to 8 people. Auditors are welcome at all sessions through the weekend. Auditing lessons is at the permission of the facility and student. Auditing in First Conversations is highly interactive. We anticipate many engaging exercises in the follow-up sessions as well.”

This clinic will include observation, interactive workshops, herd observation, interactions at liberty and in-hand practice. Our goal is to send each participant off with a deeper connection and understanding of horses, leading them to calmer, more safe, enriching, and enjoyable experiences.

Clinic Fees include 2 meals a day, snacks and drinks. Pony Club Members get a 15% discount on auditing.
