  ABOUT THE PROGRAM

Wild Horse Workshops and Wild Horse U. are educational projects involving LRTC and BLM. They involve several days of actual wild horse gentling and training activities and wild horse adoptions. Interested parties can register to participate "hands on" in the pens or they can simply come and spectate for free from the stands. Participants can adopt horses at the workshop.

  HISTORY OF THE WORKSHOPS

The first Wild Horse Workshop was held in 1998. The original clinicians included 1SG Mark Atwood (Director, Cmdg. General's Mounted Color Guard, Ft. Riley) and trainers Frank Bell, Dennis Bright, John Sharp and Lesley Neuman.

Cher Eastep of Colorado and Robert Denlinger of Kentucky joined the teaching team in 1999 and we added demonstrations on clicker training. Hue Simpson of California presented her "Focus Training" techniques which are based in part on TTeam.

Since then we have enjoyed the participation of Rick and Kitty Laumann, Jim Rea, Steve Rother, Mike Horrigan, Donna West, Chris Erlon and Diane Delano.


  WILD HORSE WORKSHOP '06

This fall's event is being held at Camelot Arena in Stagecoach, NV... in the middle of wild horse country. In fact it's not unusual to spot wild bands from the arena property. (Observe local speed limits!)
