Join us for this three-workshop series featuring Kate Beardsley of Mustangs to the Rescue, Victoria and Josh Wiliams of My Horse Journey, and a local vet (TBD). Learn how to keep you and your horse safe, primarily by avoiding situations that make you and them unsafe, but also what to do if those safety measures fail. We will look at this question from three angles.
